Welcome to BYU's Information and Decision Laboratories (IDeA Labs). IDeA Labs is a network of laboratories operated by a single, interdisciplinary research group. This group uses systems, control theory, and related tools to analyze and design a variety of complex systems and information processing techniques.
Each laboratory in the network houses projects that are related by a common application area. This focus allows students to investigate concrete problems, work with industrial partners, and collaborate with academic application experts.
By unifying these laboratories with a common group, we concentrate our research on fundamental issues of processing information in complex, uncertain environments. Students working on a project in one lab often discover that the nature of their problem is very similar to an entirely different problem in a completely different area. This focus on the theoretical foundation unifying different application domains helps students to think more deeply about their research.
