In the Auton lab, we focus on machine learning, especially data mining, reinforcement learning, control and logistics. Today information is processed in a huge variety of places, ranging from humble thermostats, traffic lights and TV remote controls up to continuous-flow manufacturing processes, packaging machines, truck routers, car engine management systems and plant management consoles. Here's what we find exciting: Imagine a future where all these systems have the computational power of a thousand Deep Blue chess search engines. The hardware and infrastructure for this future are not unthinkably far off. We are concerned with the computer science of exploiting this power.
