Many of the information-processing tasks under study draw on a common set of principles and mathematical techniques for their solution. Combined study of the adaptive nature of artificial and biological systems facilitates the many benefits accruing from treating essentially the same problem from different perspectives.

A principal theme is the study of artificial learning systems. This includes theoretical foundations (e.g. statistical theory, information theory), the development of new models and algorithms, and applications.
