Machine Learning Group

Welcome to the Machine Learning Group (MLG). We are a highly active group of researchers working on all aspects of machine learning. Our interests span theoretical foundations, optimization algorithms, and a variety of applications (vision, speech, healthcare, materials science, NLP, biology, among others).
