Institute for Intelligent Systems

The mission of the Institute for Intelligent Systems is to explore intelligent systems in humans, animals, computers, and abstract information technologies. It is widely recognized that there are substantial limitations with the conventional systems in computer science, telecommunications, business, management, and science. Conventional systems are static, linear, brittle, inflexible, slow, or not adaptive to changes in the world. Scientists, engineers and scholars throughout the world have therefore been developing intelligent systems that are considerably more powerful. These systems are hybrids of intelligence in machines, biology, and the human mind. The research in the IIS explores new, cutting edge areas of cognitive science, artificial intelligence, complex dynamical systems, educational technologies, neural networks, evolutionary modeling, massively parallel systems, and biological systems.
