OUR FOCUS: Scalable evolutionary algorithms, machine learning and frameworks for knowledge mining, prediction, analytics and optimization.
March 20 2014: Una-May, leader of ALFA, just returned from a two week trip to Asia. In Hong Kong she gave talks at both Hong Kong PolyU and Chinese UHK on ALFA's MOOCDB and MoocViz projects. With ALFA postdoc Erik Hemberg, she visited to Shantou University (STU), China . The duo kicked off Week 1 of their new blended learning course. The course pilots a novel blended learning architecture..
APPLICATIONS: Clinical Medicine Knowledge Discovery: arterial blood pressure forecasting and pattern recognition, diuretics in the ICU; Wind Energy: turbine layout optimization, resource prediction, cable layout; MOOC Technology: moocDB, dynamics of student persistence in 6.002X, resource usage analysis. BIGDATA.
