LFD-Lab: Laboratory for Learning From Data
Faculty: Malik Magdon-Ismail

Welcome to LFD-Lab. We deal with learning from anything data.
Research interests include:
   algorithms for big data
   machine learning: supervised, unsupervised, reinforcement
   data mining and pattern recognition
   social networks
   probability and stochastic processes
   computational finance
ML Book

The premise of learning is that you want to understand some process, but you cannot solve this problem mathematically or analytically; instead, you have data from which you would like to learn/infer the process; and, be confident that you succeeded (or failed). Ultimately you will take some action based on your learning, and you would like to take the correct action.

This is a very broad premise, and it is no surprise that there are many applications.
