DATA MINING, WEB MINING and PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS @UT
We are primarily concerned with analyzing and mining complex data in various forms - web logs, hypertext, XML, databases, signals and images - in order to characterize and understand the underlying phenomena.
Most of our approaches are
related to statistical methods or machine learning and AI techniques, but attuned to complex data and
scalability. We work on fundamental conceptual issues as well as on a wide variety of practical applications.
