(January 2015) We are currently
hiring faculty in AI/machine learning as well as more broadly in computer science.
(Dec 2014) The new Data Science Initiative is now up and running - check out our
for the latest news on what's happening.
(July 2014) UCI kicked off a new 3-year Data Science Initiative on July 1st - looks like it will be interesting, watch this space!
(July 2014) Presented an invited talk at AAAI in July on "30 years of Probability in AI and Machine Learning", which was fun to put together. And also attended a summer school in Heidelberg with psychologists interested in using machine learning and statistics to better understand dialog - a fun week.
(June 2014) Congrats to various machine learning students who graduated with their PhDs recently including Jimmy Foulds from my group (headed to a postdoc at UCSC), Levi Boyles from Max Welling's group (headed to a postdoc at Oxford), and Qiang Liu from Alex Ihler's group (headed to a postdoc at MIT and then a faculty position at Dartmouth).
