ISIS has naturally evolved from the combination of the well-established research groups in Advanced Systems Research (ASR) and Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (VSSP) in the recognition of the need for inter- and multi-disciplinary research to cope with the requirements of increased complexity, performance and robustness and the incorporation of disparate knowledge sources.
ISIS activities are centred in fundamental theory and algorithm development associated with adaptive data modelling, machine learning, control theory and signal processing. This research is developed through the verification and validation in the real-world problem domains of vision and image processing, speech, guidance and control, autonomous systems command+control, automotive, aerospace, biomedical fields, etc. We also concerned with the development of methodologies for integrating such techniques in overall systems engineering.
ISIS is currently composed of approximately 70 researchers, and is led by Professor Mahesan Niranjan.
