August 3, 2022 Faculty receive funding through American Family Insurance partnership Written By: JANE FELLER Departments: Industrial & Systems Engineering Categories: Grants|Research A trio of UW-ISyE faculty members have received 2022 American Family data science research grants. Jim Luedtke and Jeff Linderoth will pair up once again, this time for a grant entitled “Optimal Features for Heterogeneous Matrix Completion”. This project will develop a new model and algorithms specifically tailored to complete matrices with heterogeneous data, with important applications in recommender systems, computer vision systems for processing and analyzing visual images, data inference, and outlier detection. Gabriel Zayas -Caban will be part of a grant entitled “Quasi-Experimental Designs for Learning Systems”, which seeks to develop a causal inference framework for estimating the effects of intervention on certain systems and providing algorithms to guide their use of risk prediction models in their operations.
