New center for cross-disciplinary research - CCILD

September 8, 2005

The applications of artificial intelligence extend beyond computer science, and the establishment of the new Center for Computational Intelligence, Learning, and Discovery (CCILD) is only the first step in applying its principles to our everyday life. The Center is directed by Dr. Vasant Honavar, professor in ISU's computer science department, and supported by 20 other faculty in departments including computer science, statistics, genetics, economics, psychology, animal science, and others. CCILD aims to pursue fundamental research and research-based advanced training in algorithmic models of intelligence, learning, and discovery. CCILD faculty and students are developing algorithms and software tools for gleaning knowledge from data. This research, driven by scientific, economic, and technological problems of major societal importance which are drawn from virtually every area of human endeavor, will enable large scale data driven science, collaborative discovery, and decision making in many fields includeing Bioinformatics, Security Informatics, Medical Informatics, Enterprise Informatics, and Social Informatics.
