What is your level of experience with Statistics, Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning and/or Data Mining?

Key research contributions are: Clustering; Adaptive Resonance and Reinforcement Learning architectures, hardware and applications; Neurofuzzy regression; Traveling Salesman Problem heuristics; Robotic Swarms; and Bioinformatics. He is an IEEE Fellow and previous INNS President, INNS Fellow and Senior Fellow[masked], and served as IJCNN General Chair, and on several Boards, including the St. Patrick’s School Board, IEEE Neural Networks Council, International Neural Networks Society, and the University of Missouri Bioinformatics Consortium, and Chaired the Missouri S&T Information Technology and Computing Committee. He has produced 16 Ph.D. recipients in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science; has attracted over $8 million in sponsored research; and has over 300 publications including nine books. His research has been cited over 7500 times.

What tools and technologies do you use?

Neural networks, clustering, reinforcement learning, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, particle swarm optimization, nonlinear regression and other time series analysis techniques. And anything else that works!

What do you hope to get out of this group?

See old friends and meet new ones, learn about what other people are thinking and needing in the field.
