The Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Computational Intelligence is focused on machine learning and heterogeneous computer architecture. Machine learning is critical to transform huge volume of raw data (e.g., spatial and temporal sensory data, online dynamic data, …) into computational intelligence. Heterogeneous architecture enables maintaining the required performance within acceptable power and area constraints. The synergetic combination of new machine learning algorithms and computer architecture that make these algorithms practical and efficient lays the foundation for many promising and attractive usages together with the needed hardware and software.

The vision for the ICRI-CI is to conduct long-range exploratory research and deliver breakthroughs in architecture, algorithms, and usage models. By bringing together the top minds in the fields of machine learning and computer architecture, and providing the funding and collaborative environment needed to accelerate their research, we hope to create technologies and capabilities for next generation intelligent devices that are efficient, adaptive and always-learning.
