Center for Intelligent Systems (CIS)
The fundamental research and its applications cross the boundaries of schools at EPFL and create opportunities for direct interactions with Swiss industry.
The Center for Intelligent Systems (CIS) at EPFL, a joint initiative of the schools ENAC, IC, SB, STI and SV seeks to advance research and practice in the strategic field of intelligent systems. Such systems are embedded with elements of artificial intelligence and are emerging in response to the convergence of the virtual and physical worlds through the development of autonomous systems, wearable technologies, robotic co-workers, smart devices, drone technology, augmented reality, intelligent houses, digital twins, intelligent manufacturing, and many other applications.
When available, such technologies will have profound implications for many areas including manufacturing, transportation, commerce, employment, healthcare, government, legal, security, privacy, and education.
- To bring people together within EPFL under the umbrella of Intelligent Systems
- To encourage ambitious collaborative projects to build Intelligent Systems
- To act as the point of contact and collaboration for Swiss industry

Prof M. Mathis receives the FENS EJN Young Investigator Prize 2022
The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and the European Journal of Neuroscience (EJN), in partnership with its publisher Wiley, have awarded their Young Investigator Prize 2022 to Prof Mackenzie Mathis.
Swimming robot gives fresh insight into locomotion and neuroscience
Thanks to their swimming robot modeled after a lamprey, EPFL scientists may have discovered why some vertebrates are able to retain their locomotor capabilities after a spinal cord lesion. The finding could also help improve the performance of swimming robots used for search and rescue missions and for environmental monitoring.
