Artificial Intelligence Research Group
What is the AI research group?
The AI research group is interested in a variety of algorithms that mimic aspects of human intelligence or other biological systems. This includes:
- Machine learning (including statistical learning and connectionism)
- Biologically-inspired computation
- Artificial life (in particular open-ended evolution)
- Combinatorial search (in particular meta-heuristic and hyper-heuristic approaches)
For more information on the UC AI Research Group please visit their website.
The main contributing members of the Artificial Intelligence Research Group can be seen below:
- Kourosh Neshatian: machine learning
