PhD in Computer Science, University of Maryland at College Park,
My main research interests are in the broad areas of machine learning, information acquisition, and decision theory. Specifically, I am interested in active learning, active inference, interactive machine learning, transparent machine learning, statistical relational learning, collective classification, and probabilistic graphical models. My recent TEDx talk (~8 minutes) gives a pretty good idea on what I am interested in: YouTube Link for Transparent and Interactive Artificial Intelligence. The abstract of my NSF CAREER award provides a succinct summary of what I work on: http://nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1350337.
I am the founder and director of the
machine learning laboratory @ Illinois Tech. More information about my
research group and recent projects can be found at our laboratory
