Probabilistic Learning Research Group at BI Lab

The Probabilistic Learning Research Group at Biointelligence Lab investigates machine learning algorithms for probabilistic graphical models such as hierarchical Bayesian networks (HBN) and self-organizing latent lattice models (SOLL). Our current research focuses on structural learning of large-scale probabilistic graphical models in a noisy and/or dynamic environment. For example, we are developing methods for learning large-scale Bayesian networks (having more than 10,000 nodes) from sparse datasets. Major application areas of these techniques include text mining and multi-modal associative information analysis.
