UT-MINDS (Machine INtelligence and Decision Systems) @ WNCG

The WNCG initiative in Machine INtelligence and Decision Systems (UT-MINDS) involves research in large-scale data mining and machine learning, with applications to solving complex engineering or business problems. Going beyond just algorithmic/statistical machine learning, we specialize in reliable and effective design of full-stack systems, from acquisition and conditioning of sensory and other high-volume/disparate data sources, through to continual learning and decision making logic built on top of learning systems.

Topics of expertise include modeling and analysis of complex networks, both social and physical, design of large-scale recommender systems, analysis of heterogeneous and complex EHR and other health data, learning from distributed sensor data acquired from intelligent transportation systems, multi-modal machine learning, etc. Seminal advances have been made in the theoretical (sample complexity, statistical bounds, etc), algorithmic, statistical and hardware/software implementational aspects associated with such problems. We have also deployed several data-driven solutions that interface with real cyber-physical systems.

UT-MINDS invites industry partners through its AFFILIATES program.
