Prof. Shimon Whiteson

Assoc. Prof. Shimon Whiteson’s research focuses on artificial intelligence. His goal is to design, analyse, and evaluate the algorithms that enable computational systems to acquire and execute intelligent behaviour. He’s particularly interested in machine learning, with which computers can learn from experience, and decision-theoretic planning, with which they can reason about their goals and deduce […]

Prof. Yee Whye Teh

Prof. Yee Whye Teh’s research interests are in machine learning and computational statistics, in particular scalable learning, probabilistic models, Bayesian nonparametrics and deep learning. He is particularly interested in theoretically well-founded, but practically relevant, statistical algorithms for learning from data. He has worked on applications in genetics/genomics, text processing, recommender systems, and machine vision.
