The Information and Decision System Group (IDS) at the Universidad de Chile was created in 2010 as a collaborative initiative to conjugate  research efforts of faculties working on the areas of information theory, estimation, prediction and statistical signal processing at the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Universidad de Chile.

The genesis of the group was a common interest in inverse problems involving information processing (estimation, detection and coding), where the use of probability theory, signal processing and learning theory are the key ingredients.

Our mission is to develop new results, computational tools and devices for optimal decision making in environments with uncertainty.
