Our research in artificial intelligence and big data explores how we can understand intelligence by constructing computational models of intelligent behavior and how we can apply the insights gleaned from the vast amount of information available in our world. Specifically, we study and develop algorithmic theories to model aspects of behavior through machine learning, predictive modeling, data mining, and causal discovery. We explore its applications in health and bioinformatics, social and organizational informatics, learning analytics, text analytics, image analytics, and computational discovery, among others.
