The Interactive Systems Lab at Carnegie Mellon (CMU) and at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is a Research Lab that aims to develop better multilingual, multimodal human-human and human-machine communication and interaction technologies. ISL was founded in 1990 and has proposed and developed numerous international innovations and breakthroughs that already improve international communication today. These innovations have led to several successful start-up companies, government and corporate field transition, and new academic chairs and professorships in the US, Europe and Asia. The ISL has graduated many PhD’s and Master level researchers worldwide that have also gone on to extend the ISL’s mission and vision.
Our laboratory is founding member of InterACT . The international center for Advanced Communication Technologies is a joint center between eight of the leading universities in the field of computer science. ISL also serves as coordinating partner and contact point for InterACT at either University. The international center for Advanced Communication Technologies (interACT ) is a joint center between eight of the leading universities computer science and related fields.
