Welcome to MLRG @ Binghamton

Welcome to the machine learning research group at Binghamton! Our group works broadly on designing machine learning models for complex, relational, unstructured, and heterogeneous data. Our group focuses both on designing novel algorithms for such complex interconnected data and applications of these algorithms on real-world data.

Specifically, our group works on statistical relational learning, deep learning, probabilistic graphical, and latent variable models. We demonstrate the utility of these models on applications including smart energy, computational social science, education, social media, and urban computing data. For a complete list of ongoing research projects, see our research page.

We are looking for passionate PhD, Masters and Undergraduate students to join the team!
