                                        The aims of ICI are to promote the integration of interdisciplinary research fields. Through the cooperation in interdisciplinary research leading to consensus and wisdom, ICI plays a key role in advancing scientific discovery, nurturing talents and developing economy. As one of the centres under ICI, the Centre for Cognitive and Brain Sciences (CCBS) is dedicated to enhancing the interdisciplinary and cross faculty cognitive and brain science research. Through the sophisticated research platforms consisted of neuroimaging (3T MAGNETOM Prisma fMRI) core lab, brain intervention core lab, behavior data collection core lab and high performance computing core lab, CCBS is expected that high-profile research work will be carried out to produce a number of key scientific outputs and discoveries with world influences. The Centre of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR), one of the centres of ICI, aims to promote educational and research activities in the field of AI and robotics. CAIR has as the vision of bridging the gap between industries and University with a distinctive capability to harness the intellectual energy of academia to impact Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area industries with state of the art AI and robotics technologies. Another centre under ICI, the Centre for Data Science (CDS) actively explores innovative ways for cooperation, introduces new scientific paradigms and investigates new technologies for data collection, processing, analysis and learning with super intelligent computing platforms in order to meet social challenges.
