Machine Learning and Data Science Research
Data plays a critical role in all areas of IEOR, from theoretical developments in optimization and stochastics to applications in automation, logistics, health care, energy, finance, and other areas. Much of the recent interest in data science and machine learning has been spurred by the growing ability to apply vast computational power to large scale datasets in nearly every application domain. Faculty and students in the UC Berkeley IEOR department are engaged in cutting edge and interdisciplinary research in ML/DS, including topics like developing scalable and memory-efficient learning algorithms, integrating prediction and optimization models, sparse learning models, addressing fairness concerns, reinforcement learning and control, clustering and learning with network data, as well as applications of ML/DS to various domains.
