The fundamental research and its applications cross the boundaries of schools at EPFL and create opportunities for direct interactions with Swiss industry.

The newly created Center for Intelligent Systems (CIS) at EPFL, a joint initiative of the schools ENAC, IC, SB and STI, 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.

CIS Goals

  • 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
