EPFL Lausanne

The ELLIS unit Lausanne brings together researchers working on various aspects of creating intelligent systems. The fundamental research and its applications cross the boundaries of schools at EPFL and create opportunities for direct interactions with Swiss industry. It is organized around 4 main pillars (Math & theory, software & hardware, technology and ethics) and reaches out to various application domains such as autonomous systems, wearable technologies, robotic co-workers, smart devices, drone technology, augmented reality, intelligent houses, digital twins, intelligent manufacturing, and many more. The unit is aligned with one of the strategic domains of EPFL, and of the Swiss Confederation, and is closely linked to the newly created Center for Intelligent Systems (CIS) at EPFL, a joint initiative of the schools IC, SB and STI, which seeks to advance research and practice in the strategic field of intelligent systems.
