In the meanwhile IACAS is mainly engaged in the R&D of intelligent communication process system, intelligent control and other high-tech fields. So far, it has succeeded in developing a series of high-tech products, epitomizing in Human/Machine Dialogue System, Advanced Robots Controller, Lie Detector, etc. The Model Identification (MI) Lab, as one of the state key laboratories with IACAS undertakes the studies of fundamental theory of MI, computer visualization, Image process and graphics, language identification, etc.
