kynamatrix Research Network: Innovation through Collaboration

kynamatrix is a network of researchers dedicated to the understanding and advancement of interactive communication, accelerating innovation in design, engineering, and computer science.

We operate two programs which work together toward achieving our mission of solving real-world problems.

Program 1: Research

We are advancing innovation in four applied areas: communication: making technology more transparent and bringing people closer together; energy: collaboration in the renewable energy sector; transportation: alternative solutions to moving people and things; and public safety: innovative solutions to make the world a safer place.

Combining all four areas, we are researching, designing, and documenting a scalable, emergency urban environment plan by creating a fractal-like recursive algorithm. Because millions of people can be left homeless when disaster strikes, we are developing the plans to handle from 1,000 to 100,000 people per instance.

Program 2: Grant Gifting

Encouraging collaboration and the study of interactive communication across the academic disciplines of design, engineering, and computer science.

Grants are by invitation only and are available to 501(c)(3) organizations and universities.

Annually, we award support grants to innovative collaborative projects that align with our mission.
