Intelligent Systems Lab

Bringing intelligent design to the physical world

The Intelligent Systems Lab (ISL) delivers the capabilities to design, build, and operate complex cyber-physical systems with embedded intelligence. With an all-inclusive lens, our research teams turn unique ideas into things that operate at high performance and require very little training. Applying resilience means systems can handle equipment faults, human errors, cyber-attacks, climate change, and other unexpected conditions. Our work in heterogeneous human-machine collaboration ranges from multi-modal to human-in-the-loop AI approaches that integrate information and assistance with physical tasks.  

Making a difference

Our researchers develop technologies that deliver new ways to think about design and digital manufacturing, understand how to develop layers of resilience and autonomy, and build systems and solutions that leverage human-machine dialogue.

Our expert capabilities include domain and physics-aware AI, machine learning, computer vision, computational modeling and simulation, data analytics, diagnostics & prognostics, control, knowledge representation, and more.  

Research, always applied

See how everyday exploration delivers in the real world.

  • Conversational Agents

    Natural language processing and machine learning to build dialog systems and conversational technologies like call center agents and conversational copiers.

  • Geometric and Spatial Reasoning

    Building next-generation CAD tools that allow detailed representation of complex structures like lattice or bones to meet modern manufacturing demands.

  • Collaborative Conversational Systems

    Partnering with machines is integral to the future. Human-Machine collaboration and Explainable AI (XAI) Systems are research areas for us.
