The Machine Learning Group is part of the Center for Automated Learning and Discovery (CALD), an interdisciplinary center that pursues research on learning, data analysis and discovery.
``Ever since computers were invented, it has been natural to
wonder whether they might be made to learn. If we could
understand how to program them to learn the impact would be dramatic. The
practice of computer programming would be revolutionized as many
tedious hand-coding tasks would be replaced by automatic learning
methods. And a successful understanding of how to make computers
learn would most likely yield a better understanding of human
learning abilities and disabilities as well.''
