Intel® University Research: ISTC

Exploratory Research in the United States

Intel Labs has launched Intel Science and Technology Centers (ISTC) to foster collaborations and development of communities including Intel and academia.  Our mission is to build domestic collaborations with academic pioneers who will discover and drive the ways in which computing will enrich the human experience for generations to come, and to be leaders, leveraging the resulting insights to influence Intel.  Each research community is Intel-funded, jointly-led, and focused on a specific technology area or discipline, bringing together top researchers from across academia working with Intel to explore and uncover not only new answers, but new questions. Click on the title of any program to learn more about that program. Or learn about the Intel Collaborative Research Institutes in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

ISTC for Big Data
