Machine Learning Center (MLC) has been founded in April 2014, to develop an efficient and effective algorithm for lifelong machine learning, which is an extension of multi-task learning paradigm. MLC is funded by a basic research IT program from Institute for Information & Technology Promotion (IITP). MLC is composed of highly excellent professors and graduate students in machine learning and its closely related areas from POSTECH, KAIST, SNU, Korea, and Yonsei university. Moreover, MLC recruited the four technically innovative companies: Diquest, Daumsoft, and Exbrain.
The primary goal of MLC is to release SMILE (Software for Machine Intelligence with Lifelong machine lEarning) platform, which is composed of the four key components: (1) Bayesian learning for lifelong machine learning, (2) deep learning on Spark platform, (3) multi-modal learning, and (4) healthcare system. Each component has been carefully chosen to achieve our goal, which is to develop an efficient and effective algorithm for lifelong machine learning. We are trying to do our best to make SMILE platform be the #1 lifelong machine learning platform in the world. If you are interested in SMILE platform, feel free to contact us.
