WID researcher Sushmita Roy and collaborators at UW–Madison and the University of Florida will use a $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to study how some plants partner with bacteria to create usable nitrogen and to transfer this ability to the bioenergy crop poplar.
A new tool developed at UW-Madison could save farmers time and money during the fall feed-corn harvest and make for more content, productive cows year-round.
The NRG focuses on signal processing, machine learning, optimization, and statistics. Areas of focus include sparsity and active learning, learning graphs and networks, and interactive machine learning with humans.
Research interests include signal processing, machine learning, and large-scale data science. In particular, methods to leverage low-dimensional models in a variety of contexts.
Algorithms for data mining and machine learning, and their applications to biomedical data, especially clinical and high-throughput genetic and other molecular data. Of particular interest are inductive logic programming (ILP) and other multi-relational learning techniques capable of dealing with complex data points (such as molecules or clinical histories) and producing logical rules.
