Our research center was founded as the Center for Intelligent, Distributed and Dependable Systems (CIDDS). Since that time, the number, size and types of computing platforms and applications have exploded. Data, computing, graphics and media technology are now integral to nearly every aspect of our daily lives, from health care and education to entertainment and engineering.

During this time of great change within the computing industry, our faculty’s extensive research evolved to focus on bioinformatics, medical image analysis, learning technologies, machine learning and data mining, and high-performance computing. Our center was renamed to reflect our current research.
