The Learning Algorithms and Applications Lab, helmed by Vojislav Kecman, Ph.D., develops algorithms and methods for ultra-large-scale data sets for application in bioinformatics, medicine, engineering, science, e-commerce and Web mining.

Major research areas

  • Learning algorithms for ultra-large data sets — on clouds, clusters, GPUs, grids, etc.

  • Parallelization of machine learning algorithms

  • Locally linear support vector machines and other local models for highly nonlinear dependencies

  • Transformation of regression problems into multiclass classification tasks and corresponding algorithms developments

  • Semi-supervised algorithms and software

  • Applications of all the mentioned algorithms everywhere where the data sets are available

  • Fighting AIDS — HIV infection models development

  • Biology systems modeling
