Complex Resilient Intelligent Systems Laboratory (CRIS Lab) was founded in 2011 by Prof. Venkat Venkatasubramanian. Our group’s research contributions have been in three areas: (1) Risk analysis and management in complex engineered systems, (2) Cyberinfrastructure and “big data” analytics for molecular products design and discovery, and (3) Complex adaptive teleological systems and emergence. These challenges are addressed using a combination of artificial intelligence, informatics, statistics, and mathematical programming techniques.
