Interests: I do data engineering, which combines data analysis with what ever else is needed to get useful information out of data. Active in the data mining, machine learning, probabilistic network and neural network communities.
Our project: With Lixin Su, Michael Shilman, Andy Mayer, and the help of several others here in Richard Newton's lab, we're developing the next generation of stochastic search methods using data engineering, probabilistic methods, and visualization to guide us.
Background: Wray Buntine was awarded his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1992 from University of Technology, Sydney. His Ph.D. thesis was "A Theory of Learning Classification Rules," supervised by Prof. Ross Quinlan. His undergraduate degree was in pure and applied mathematics from the University of Queensland, where he also won several national and university level awards for mathematics. He spent 1989 at the Turing Institute (since reorganized) in Glasgow, and from February 1990 to May 1995 was a principle investigator at NASA Ames Artificial Intelligence Research Branch, now the Computational Sciences Division. For a while he was Senior Research Scientist with Heuristicrats Research, Inc. and Thinkbank, Inc., and is also VP of Research and Development at Ultimode Systems.
