Machine Learning Group

Established: August 3, 2016

The Machine Learning Group at Microsoft Research Asia pushes the frontier of machine learning from theoretic, algorithmic, and practical aspects. Our current research focus is on deep/reinforcement learning, distributed machine learning, and graph learning. Other research projects from our group include learning to rank, computational advertising, and cloud pricing. We have published many highly-cited papers on top conferences and journals, helped our partner product groups apply machine learning to large and complex tasks, and open-sourced Microsoft Distributed Machine Learning Toolkit (DMTK) and Microsoft Graph Engine.

 


微软亚洲研究院机器学习组在理论、算法、应用等不同层面推动机器学习领域的学术前沿。我们目前的研究重点为深度学习/增强学习、分布式机器学习和图学习。我们的研究课题还包括排序学习、计算广告和云定价。在过去的十几年间,我们在顶级国际会议和期刊上发表了大量高质量论文,帮助微软的产品部门解决了很多复杂问题,并向开源社区贡献了微软分布式机器学习工具包(DMTK)和微软图引擎,并受到广泛关注。
