Laboratory for Information and Inference Systems – LIONS
We divide our research into two synergistic theory thrusts: information scalable optimization and data acquisition, and learning theory and methods for low-dimensional signal models. These research directions dovetail in order to develop a unified theory and practical toolset for adaptive representations, sampling and computational methods for high-dimensional data that feature structured geometric and combinatorial foundations.
NSF career award for a former LIONS – Anastasios (Tasos) Kyrillidis
A former LIONS PhD student, Anastasios (Tasos) Kyrillidis, who in 2018 landed a faculty position at Rice University (Department of Computer Science) has received a prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award for his research proposal titled “Algorithmic foundations for practical acceleration in computational sciences.
LIONS @ ICLR and AISTATS 2022
