Welcome to Machine Learning Laboratory @ IIT

Machine learning is the field of developing algorithms that can learn and automate nontrivial tasks. Examples include recommender systems, medical diagnosis, image segmentation, face recognition, fraud detection, sentiment analysis, and many more.

At the machine learning laboratory at IIT, we develop algorithms that are applicable to various real-world problems where the users and computers actively collaborate for more accurate, reliable, and faster decision making. For most problems, users are more accurate but slower and machines are faster but less accurate. We research and develop systems that combine the accuracy of humans with the speed of machines through interactive and intelligent algorithms. Applications include computers and humans collaborating to detect and identify people in large volumes of surveillance video, diagnose patients more accurately, detect fraud in hundreds of thousands of tax records, etc.
