Artificial Intelligence Research at the Information Sciences Institute (Research in Progress)

  • William Mann


Founded in 1972 to develop and disseminate new ideas in computer science, the Information Sciences Institute (ISI) is an off-campus research center of the University of Southern California, with a combined research and support staff of over one hundred. The Institute engages in a broad set of research and application-oriented projects in the computer sciences. These projects range from basic efforts, through development of prototype systems, to operation of a major Arpanet computer facility. The Institute AI research focuses on program synthesis user interfaces, programming environments, natural language, and expert systems. AI researchers are supported by ten personal Lisp workstations, several VAXs, two TOPS-20 systems, and a magnificent view of Marina del Rey.
