Laboratory for Computational and Statistical Learning (LCSL)

Principal Investigator Tomaso Poggio

Co-investigator Lorenzo Andrea Rosasco

The Laboratory for Computational and Statistical Learning (LCSL) is the result of a collaborative agreement between the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia and the MIT. The aim is to advance the frontiers of learning theory and machine learning, while building algorithmic tools for the analysis of complex systems and high dimensional data. The approach blends well established concepts and methods from computer science, statistics and signal processing with modern results in (high dimensional) probability, into new computational tools for statistical inference. The goal is to channel theory and algorithms into new applications including smarter technologies and sophisticated engines for inference from high-dimensional data/signals. The ultimate objective of the lab is a future generation of intelligent technologies.
