Extending the Reach of Human Intelligence
In today’s increasingly data-driven, networked world, we have an unprecedented opportunity to monitor, control and improve our surroundings. By engineering hardware and software systems to acquire, analyze and act upon information from a diverse array of networked sources, we can extend the reach of human intelligence to solve critical problems in healthcare, communications, energy, national security and other domains.
At Boston University’s Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE), 39 affiliated faculty members and more than 100 graduate students from across BU—primarily from the College of Engineering, College of Arts & Sciences, and School of Management—are taking an interdisciplinary approach to the study and design of such intelligent systems. Collectively, their work promises to improve the quality of our lives considerably.
Toward that end, CISE researchers are shaping and applying ideas from information science and systems engineering to advance solutions in:
A Community of Innovators
CISE supports a community of faculty and students across Boston University with interests in Information and Systems Engineering. Community activities include a renowned seminar series, an annual student conference, a resident scholar program, and programs to support student travel to conferences, as well as, resume and presentation development workshops for students.
