Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory



The Machine Learning group has expertise in developing and tailoring Machine Learning algorithms to solve classification, anomaly/change detection, prediction, and clustering tasks on "Big Data". Our researchers have extensive experience with Random Forests, Deep Neural Networks, SVMs, Mixture Models, HMMs and Dynamic Bayesian Networks, Ensemble Methods, and Big Data frameworks like Hadoop, Storm, and Spark.
