CSL has committed to driving innovation through the creation of centers and institutes in several key areas, including integrated microsystems, wireless systems, communication technologies and trustworthy supercomputing.
Many of the centers have strong ties with industry and government partners, who benefit from CSL's multidisciplinary focus. The resulting research provides solutions for information technology challenges now and in the future.
Develop new domain-specific machine learning algorithms to extract models using limited training data. Designers’ prior knowledge is utilized to speed-up learning and to impose physical constraints on the models.
