Better Than Ever

July 13, 2017

ISI today attracts more federal research funding than at any comparable time in its 45-year history. And the growing institute recently opened a new office in Greater Boston.

For more than four decades, the USC Information Sciences Institute (ISI) has made an outsize contribution to advancing information processing, computer and communications technologies.

ISI, a unit of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and one of the nation's most impactful university-affiliated computer research institutes, helped create the protocol architecture of the Internet; invented and developed the Domain Name System (.com, .net, etc.); and features the gold standard of cybersecurity groups in DETERLab. Its areas of expertise include intelligent systems, such as natural language, and machine translation; informatics focused on medical applications; novel electronics; and high-performance computing, including quantum techniques.

ISI's distinguished past notwithstanding, the institute's present and future hold even more promise. As it prepares to celebrate its 45th anniversary, ISI has attracted more government funding for more major projects in the last couple of years than at any time in its history. In 2016 alone, research awards exceeded $100 million in federal dollars.

Under the leadership of Prem Natarajan, a former executive vice president and principal scientist at Raytheon BBN Technologies, ISI has also just opened a new office in Greater Boston to complement its facilities in Marina del Rey and Northern Virginia.Read More
