Welcome to the Applied Machine Learning Group at Northeastern.
Professor Brodley’s research group, Applied Machine Learning at the Khoury College of Computer Sciences, focuses on core issues of machine learning, as well as real-world applications of machine learning.
Recent core issues investigated include:
- Active learning
- Conditional random fields
- Constraint-based clustering
- Crowd sourcing in clustering
Recent applications (and collaborators) include:
- Predicting disease course for Multiple Sclerosis patients (Neurology, Harvard Medical School)
- Detecting Focal Cortical Dysplasia in the MRI’s of Epilepsy Patients (Neuroscience and Radiology, NYU Medical School)
- Understanding the predictors of unilateral vestibular disorders (Mass Eye and Ear)
