Shaping the future of computing to benefit society  

SRI Information & Computing Sciences is taking on some of the world’s most important challenges, creating leading-edge technology solutions that have revolutionary impact.   

Our researchers are redefining the way human beings interact with machines and with one another through machines, as we define what’s next in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computing for the real world.

200+Research and technical staff, including 55% PhDs

$100 M+Annual research funding

$1 Billion+Created via spinoffs

“One of the things people value about SRI is the breadth of possibility. We work with other SRI teams and groups outside of SRI on a broad set of technological challenges, giving our researchers a wide range of opportunities to have real and meaningful impact on the world.”

The future of how humans meet machines  

Our research brings commercial, government, corporate, and startup customers depth of knowledge and new solutions in AI, bioinformatics, cybersecurity, privacy, and reliable system design. We’re pushing the boundaries of machine learning, including neurosymbolic approaches and AI at the edge. As we increasingly rely on AI models, autonomous systems, and the digital world, this research is taking on greater urgency and importance. We’re applying our research to making the Internet and social media more transparent, including the worldwide problem of identifying fake information.

SRI has pioneered transformative machine vision innovations. And today we’re exploring the next frontiers of virtual and augmented reality — not just talking to our computers but seeing the world through them. We also do fundamental work in speech, assessing speaker characteristics like identity and level of engagement, and understanding the nuances of spoken conversation.
