Center for Applied Intelligent Systems Research (CAISR)
The Center for Applied Intelligent Systems Research (CAISR), is a long-term research investment in applied artificial intelligence and machine learning at Halmstad University. The research is carried out in collaboration with Swedish industry and is funded by the Knowledge Foundation and Vinnova. CAISR’s research focus is “aware” intelligent systems.
CAISR is a multidisciplinary research center with researchers from different areas. Our research directions are governed by the needs of society and are done in collaboration with our industrial partners.

CAISR Industrial Advisory Board
The CAISR partners have decided to create an Industrial advisory board (IAB), consisting of representatives from each industrial partner. This group will follow the project development with respect to the co-production and co-operation between the Parties. The Industrial Advisory Group will meet twice a year. The Industrial Advisory Group will express themselves on issues of potential new partners in the project, changes in financing and project development from business perspective.
CAISR Reference Group
The reference group consists mainly of representatives from national and international research institutions. The reference group gives advice and comment on the project development from the academic perspective, not least by the University’s perspective. They will also give their view on research, innovation and education perspectives. The reference group can also provide suggestions for concrete actions to improve the project.

Research projects and application areas
The mission of CAISR is to serve and promote the development of industry and society. It is a center for industrially motivated research on the future technologies for and application opportunities with aware intelligent systems. CAISR will serve as a partner for industry's own research and development, as a recruitment base for those who seek staff with state-of-the-art knowledge in intelligent systems technologies, and as a competence resource for industry and society.
