Professor Yang receives NSF CAREER award...

Tianbao Yang presenting "Introduction to Learning with Big Data" at UICC 2019:

... for his proposal entitled "Advancing Constrained and Non-Convex Learning."

Tianbao Yang proposes to advance machine learning with complex objectives and constraints by designing and analyzing efficient and effective optimization algorithms for addressing computational challenges in new machine learning paradigms. The project will enhance the ability to solve large-scale, real-world problems from more diverse and broad applications. Furthermore, it will strive to communicate the significance of machine learning and optimization and provide excellent research experience to students at different levels.

This five-year project has been awarded $529,000.
