I am interested in building algorithms that learn from experience, to be able to
perform their tasks better.
Some of my work has
These systems have been successfully used to address
a number of real-world challenges.
- an application pull
-- i.e., is motivated by very specific tasks;
a technology push -- typically extending standard learning algorithms and analyses, to produce more robust and more effective learning systems
Thought for the day:
First things first; second things never.
I plan to update this daily... but that is not the highest
