Delivering the future
ISI's mission is to advance society through pioneering research and technological innovation. We cultivate an intellectually vibrant environment where researchers are empowered to imagine bold solutions to complex problems and to develop into world-class leaders. Guided by integrity, inclusion, and a commitment to excellence, we create unprecedented capabilities that harness information to transform lives.
Research & Development
Part of the University of Southern California’s Viterbi School of Engineering, ISI is a pioneer in research and development across an exceptionally wide range of advanced information processing, computer, and communications technologies.
Our broad expertise spans artificial intelligence, computational systems and technology, emerging technologies, informatics systems research, and networking and cybersecurity. Bridging multiple technology disciplines through both academic and industry expertise, ISI continues to shape the technologies of tomorrow.
ISI Centers are internationally renowned for pioneering research in a multitude of areas and disciplines, with collaborations with Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, and numerous other organizations. From quantum computing to global space applications, ISI Centers push forward the boundaries of innovation.
In 1981, a request from DARPA led to USC establishing The MOSIS Service at ISI — a silicon prototyping and low volume production service for custom and semicustom integrated circuits.
Over the past 40 years, The MOSIS Service has collaborated with over 50 US government laboratories and agencies, 800 domestic and foreign colleges and Universities, and more than 100 commercial companies, and continues to support the advancement of microelectronics.
Join the Future
To build upon its successes and global reach, ISI actively recruits exceptional talent. We are dedicated to investing in tomorrow’s leaders, providing numerous internship, job, and program opportunities for students, as well as unique opportunities for exceptional researchers in information sciences and related fields.
