Current Research

"If you invent a breakthrough in artificial intelligence, so machines can learn," Mr. Gates responded, "that is worth 10 Microsofts." (Quoted in NY Times, Monday March 3, 2004). Deep learning is providing that breakthrough, and machine learning is now transforming computer science and many other disciplines as well. It is an exciting time to be working in machine learning!

The focus of my research is artificial intelligence and machine learning. How can we make computer systems that adapt and learn from their experience? How can we combine machine learning with other advances in AI to build Integrated Intelligent Systems? How can we make those integrated AI systems robust to errors, both known and unknown? How can we combine human knowledge with massive data sets to expand scientific knowledge and build more useful computer applications? My work combines research on machine learning and AI fundamentals with applications to problems in science and engineering.
