The Intelligent Systems Center (ISC) performs basic and applied research in Artificial Intelligence as applied to engineered systems. This includes innovations in software, hardware, theory and policy, offering transformational impact to our most crucial challenges in manufacturing, energy, bioengineering, national security, social media, and trustworthy systems. We collaborate with industry, government, and other national and international research institutions. The Center is affiliated with national research centers such as: the Center for Aerospace Manufacturing Technologiesthe NSF ERC for Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management Systems, and the NSF I/UCRC on Intelligent Maintenance Systems. The ISC is among the largest research enterprises on campus, and is rapidly growing its membership, increasing intellectual and demographic diversity.
