The Center for Intelligent Systems and Machine Learning (CISML) is a collaboration of faculty from three colleges and eight academic departments at the University of Tennessee (UT), and is part of the College of Engineering on the Knoxville campus. Beginning as a simple faculty initiative to create a unified curricula, CISML evolved (in October 2010) into an official UT research center that studies the theory and application of intelligent systems and machine learning. In addition to UT faculty, the Center's research staff is comprised of eight experts from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
CISML's focus is on designing computer-based systems that exhibit intelligent behavior, operate autonomously, and adapt to environmental changes. Examples of the diverse research activities in this area include pattern recognition, robotics, artificial intelligence, biologically-inspired cognitive architectures, bioinformatics, and data mining, to name a few.
Data Science Knoxville Meetup
Local Data Science Meetup and wanted to be sure that CISML and its members are aware of our existence: http://www.meetup.com/DSci-KNX. Our Meetup is non-promotional and free. It's for anyone interested in the multidisciplinary field of data science and is open to novices and experts from the business and academic worlds. The aim is to maintain a forum for connecting people around data science specific topics such as tutorials and their applications, local success stories, discussions of new technologies, and best practices. CISML members likely would find our Meetup interesting, so I'm hoping you can share the link above with them. Cheers, Ken Cavagnola & James Horey
