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 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.
- 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

Digipredict digital twin will predict the evolution of Covid-19
Under a cross-disciplinary program spearheaded by EPFL, scientists will develop an AI-based system that can predict whether Covid-19 patients will develop severe cardiovascular complications and, in the longer term, detect the likely onset of inflammatory disease.
Dr. Dorina Thanou joined the CIS Collaboration Grant IS for medicine
The CIS welcomes aboard Dr. Dorina Thanou, who started working in November on the CIS collaboration grant on Intelligent systems for Healthcare, which primarily focuses on developing innovative AI solutions for cardiology, in collaboration with Prof. Emmanuel Abbe (SB/IC), Prof. Pascal Frossard (STI), and the cardiology department of CHUV. In addition, she will lead the development of the Intelligent Systems for Medicine and Health research pillar under CIS.
