ISI conducts basic and applied research across an exceptionally wide range of advanced information processing, computer and communications technologies. Our expertise ranges from core engineering and computer science discovery to design, modeling and implementation of innovative prototypes and devices – often bridging multiple technology disciplines, areas of expertise and traditional “silo” research approaches.
We work closely with our public- and private-sector customers to explore and develop diverse, high-impact information technologies for civilian and military uses. ISI focuses on:
Informatics: computer networks, medical informatics and decision systems that support coordinated analysis, insight and action, including grid computing.
Computer Networks - Medical Informatics
Intelligent Systems: artificial intelligence in natural language, machine translation, information integration, education, robotics and other disciplines.
Natural Language - Knowledge Technologies - Information Integration
Computational Systems and Technology: software and hardware supercomputing approaches, systems-on-a-chip, high-performance computing and scalable systems that aid complex decision-making, among other initiatives; and space systems.
Computational Sciences - Space Systems - Adaptive Parallel Execution
Advanced Electronics: high-caliber, low-cost, small-volume integrated circuit research and fabrication through our MOSIS service, which consolidates multiple customers’ designs onto single wafers to minimize expenses; novel CMOS extensions and post-CMOS concepts; and low power, high-performance embedded systems, including biomimetics.
