Machine Learning

Machine Learning

Machine learning is broad research area focused on pattern recognition, with strong ties to artificial intelligence, data mining, statistical pattern recognition, and predictive analytics. In the Machine Learning group at CCLS we work on designing new machine learning algorithms motivated by problems in real-world data. We also apply these algorithms to a variety of problems in the fields of energy management, computational biology, and the physical sciences.

Title: Towards Efficient Parallel Learning

MathWorks, Inc signs a pilot agreement with CCLS to test scalability of Distributed Computing Server on the Amazon Cloud Infrastructure

A team from CCLS (Haimonti Dutta, Hatim Diab and Manoj Pooleery) is collaborating with MathWorks, Inc. to test the scalability of MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox and Distributed Computing Server (MDCS) on the Amazon EC2 / S3 Cloud.

 

CCLS research to inform the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

CCLS researcher Dr. Claire Monteleoni and student Shailesh Saroha are collaborating with NASA climate modeler Dr. Gavin Schmidt, on a project that Dr. Schmidt will present this month at the IPCC Expert Meeting on Assessing and Combining Multi Model Climate Projections. The IPCC, established by the United Nations in 1988, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, shared with Al Gore.

Drs. Dutta, Waltz, Schevon and Emerson win an NSF award to work on a Distributed Framework for Learning on EEG Data obtained from Epilepsy Patients

Project Name: EEGMine: A Distributed Framework for Learning 
on EEG Data obtained from Epilepsy Patients 

PI/Co-Pis: Haimonti Dutta, David Waltz, Catherine A Schevon
and Ronald Emerson
NSF Project ID: IIS-0916186

Drs. Waltz and Vapnik win an NSF grant to study Learning Using Hidden Information

Dr. David Waltz and Dr. Valdimir Vapnik has been awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation to perform researcNSF Award Logoh in the area of "An Advanced Learning Paradigm: Learning Using Hidden Information". This project will be focusing on developing algorithms in the SVM family that allow extra information to be used effectively during training, with the understanding that this extra information will not be available during actual operation.
