Welcome to the CLRC
The Computer Learning Research Centre is dedicated
to the development of machine learning theory.
Our objectives are:
- Development of machine learning theory,
including design of efficient algorithms and analysis of their properties
- Design and implementation of software based on the algorithms
developed at the Centre
- Provision of consultancy, advice and seminars to external organizations
- Serving as a springboard for high-quality interdisciplinary research
A very sad news: David Waltz, our longtime colleague
in Columbia University, New York, passed away on 22 March 2012 after a
long illness. David was an outstanding computer
scientist and AI researcher. His work in the
case-based reasoning and his early work in Vision are
now in all standard AI text books. He was the
President of AAAI (American Association for
Artificial Intelligence) and many other prestigious
boards. He created and was the director of the Center
for Computational Learning Systems at Columbia
University. Alex Gammerman and
Vladimir Vapnik worked with him in
the CCLS Center and he also visited our Computer
Learning Research Centre at Royal Holloway. He will be sorely missed by many colleagues and Ph.D.
students with whom he worked.
His memoriam is in the Columbia University Bulletin.
