We are the Intelligent System (IntelliSys) Lab in the Computer Science Engineering Division. Our research bridges artificial intelligence (AI) and novel system architectures by designing efficient and robust AI algorithms and developing intelligent and high-performance computing systems. Check our roadmap.
