Nonparametric Bayesian Machine Learning for Modern Data Analytics

Nonparametric Bayesian Machine Learning for Modern Data Analytics

(ARC DP, 2016-2019)

Project lead: Prof. Dinh Phung

We are developing next generation machine learning methods to cope with the data deluge. Our intended outcomes include a new Bayesian nonparametric method that can express arbitrary dependency amongst multiple, heterogeneous data sour sources with infinite model complexity, together with algorithms to perform inference and deduce knowledge from them. An additional outcome is the new Bayesian statistical inference for set-valued random variables that moves beyond vectors and matrices to enrich our analytics toolbox to deal with sets, and a new deterministic fast inference to meet with real-world demand.
