The Auton Lab
Developing Artificial Intelligence for practical solutions to real world problems
The Auton Lab has devoted some of its efforts and knowledge to analyzing the threat and spread of the COVID-19 "coronavirus" pandemic, in the hopes of helping to provide rapid response to those victims suffering from it, and to avoid similar problems in the future. Please see our COVID-19 page for resources made available for this.
Research Focus Areas
The Auton Lab is interested in the underlying computer science, mathematics, statistics and AI concerning detection and exploitation of patterns in data
The Auton Lab is directed by Artur Dubrawski, Jeff Schneider, and Barnabas Poczos, but many people contribute to its success.
Andrew Moore Head of AI, Google
- Interested in building probabilistic models efficiently and in developing data structures that make machine learning very scalable and fast.
Artur Dubrawski Research Professor, CMU School of Computer Science
- Interested in researching new machine learning algorithms and data structures to facilitate probabilistic modeling, predictive analysis, interactive exploration, and understanding of data.
Barnabas Poczos Associate Professor, CMU School of Computer Science
- His research interests lie in the theoretical questions of statistics and their applications to machine learning, computer vision, astronomy, and bioinformatics.
Jeff Schneider Research Professor, CMU School of Computer Science
- His research is in learning, optimization, data mining, scheduling, robotics, and intelligent control. Additional areas include navigation, manipulation, vision, and other types of sensing.
