Based in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford, our research spans the whole range of modern statistics and machine learning with particular strengths in probabilistic modelling, nonparametric methods, Monte Carlo, variational inference, deep learning, causality, and applications in genetics, genomics and medicine.
In collaboration with Oxford Sparks, machine learning group members Seth Flaxman, Hyunjik Kim, and Prof Yee Whye Teh created a two minute animation answering the question, “What is machine learning?”.
Many group members will be at NIPS 2016 presenting work at the main conference and workshops.
We will have an opening for a two-year full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant, in the areas of kernel methods, Gaussian processes, or probabilistic programming. Queries should be addressed to Professor Yee Whye Teh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
