Ústav inteligentních systémů

Vědecko-výzkumná činnost ústavu zahrnuje především problematiku inteligentních systémů, ale pozornost je také věnována systémům pro specifické aplikace a systémům založeným na počítačích, návrhu rozhraní a využívání paralelismu na více úrovních. Dalšími oblastmi zájmu jsou integrace komponent do vestavěných aplikací, simulace a prototypování jejich různých konfigurací i formální specifikace a verifikace návrhu.


The research activity of the department is focused before all on intelligent systems, but attention is also paid to systems for specific applications, computer-based systems, interface design and use of multilevel parallelism. The main fields of interest are biometric security systems, wireless networks, security, cryptography, formal specific cation and verification of the design, integration of components into embedded applications, and simulation and prototyping of different configurations.

The department consists of 17 senior researchers and 51 junior researchers. There have been 44 PhD graduates over the past 5 years so far.
