Founded in 1972, The Information Sciences Institute (ISI) of the University of Southern California (USC) is a world leader in research and development of advanced information processing, computer and communications technologies. ISI is one of the nation’s largest, most successful university-affiliated research institutes. The Institute attracts nearly $60 million annually – from corporations and more than 20 federal government agencies – for basic and applied research. USC/ISI bridges the gap between theoretical basic research and product-oriented research and development. ISI’s diverse expertise ranges from core engineering and computer science discovery to design, modeling and implementation of innovative prototypes and devices. ISI's technical areas include
1) computational systems and technology such as adaptive parallel execution, fine-grained computing, wireless communications and networking, quantum computing, supercomputing and biomimetics;
2) advanced electronics for space and other purposes
3) intelligent systems such as natural language, machine translation and information integration;
4) informatics that include computer networks, medical informatics and decision systems.
A pacesetter for nearly 40 years, ISI helped conceive, design and implement the Internet, including communications protocols that remain fundamental to today's Internet operations. ISI developed the Domain Name System (DNS) and its now-familiar “.com” address system. ISI's MOSIS subsidiary has fabricated more than 50,000 low-cost, low-volume integrated circuits for customers worldwide. ISI is also the home of USC Lockheed Martin Quantum Computation Center.
The Institute employs about 350 engineers, research scientists, and staff. About half of our research staff holds Ph.D.s, with 50 serving as USC adjunct faculty. ISI offers many of the best features of two worlds: major research universities and corporate research-and-development labs. The result is an unusually flexible working environment in which information scientists can focus on the subjects that intrigue them most -- in roles designed to reflect individual career goals -- with internationally renowned colleagues from numerous, cutting-edge technology disciplines.
ISI is based in Marina del Rey, California, and maintains a satellite office in the Nation's capital area in Arlington, Virginia. ISI-Arlington plays a vital role in serving ISI's government customers.
