Seminar

Steve Green and Karl Haberl

Computer Science Building, CS 151

Faculty Host: James Allan

Oracle's always been a Big Data company, but most people just think of it as "that database company."  In this talk, we'll introduce you to Oracle Labs and to the Information Retrieval and Machine Learning group at Oracle Labs in Burlington, MA. Our research interests include core relevance in search engines, learning to rank, scalable data stores, statistical NLP, and more general machine learning.  We'll highlight some work we've done on social analytics, scalable data stores, and running machine learning algorithms on a GPU.

Most of the work that we do is in collaboration with product groups inside of Oracle, and along the way we'll introduce you to the groups at Oracle that we are working with.
