About the Intelligent Data Analysis Lab at SMU
At IDA@SMU we create novel techniques inspired by knowledge discovery, data mining, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data analytics and statistical learning to work with data from various sources. We currently focus on creating novel techniques for knowledge discovery from large scale data streams with applications in storm prediction, security metagenomics, health screening, and recommender systems. All projects are accompanied by code published as open source R packages (CRAN/BioConductor). We currently maintain 15 very popular packages. > read about our current projects
IDA@SMU is part of the Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering, SMU. The lab was created in 2009 when Dr. Hahsler joined as director. It is the successor of SMU's Database Research Group founded by Dr. Dunham.
