Machine Learning Research Groups in India

Name University Description Link
MLSIGIIScThe group enjoys the presence of several outstanding faculty engaged in cutting-edge research on a variety of aspects of machine learning and related fields, ranging from theoretical foundations to new algorithms as well as several exciting applications
MLSIGIIT-MIIT Madras's Machine Learning Special Interest Group.
Machine Learning and Learning Theory Group IIScSome of our current research directions include designing and analyzing algorithms for problems such as ranking and various types of structured prediction tasks, understanding statistical consistency properties for such problems, exploring new issues in machine learning such as those related to privacy, and selected applications of machine learning in computational biology and medicine.
Vision and Learning Research GroupISI KolkataAim of the group is to conduct fundamental and advanced research in the area of computer vision, image processing, pattern recognition and machine learning.
Machine Learning and Data Mining GroupIIT-GWe are building systems for Wikipedia mining, text to speech synthesis for Indian languages, sports data analytics, real estate price prediction and many more.
InfoLabIIT-BTthe group covers a wide range of research areas such as databases, data mining, information retrieval, and machine learning.
Centre for Data EngineeringIIIT-HWe are working in areas of Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing focused on Indian Languages.
IRLABDAIICTWe are working in areas of Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing focused on Indian Languages.
DAIRIIT-DData Analytics and Intelligence Research (DAIR) is a fledgling research group at IITD-CSE, comprising four faculty members: Amitabha Bagchi, Mausam, Maya Ramanath and Parag Singla. This seminar series is a weekly hangout for all members of the research group as well as those who are interested in joining the group.
MALLIIScOne of our primary research goals is to extract, orgazine, and make readily available the knowledge trapped inside such unstructured text data on a large scale. To achieve these goals, our research spans the areas of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.
ML-LABIIScThe Machine Learning lab was setup to study theoretical and applied aspects of Machine Learning in various domains. We are interested in : Large Scale convex optimization for learning problems, Multiple Kernel Learning, Robust decision making under uncertainty, Bayesian Nonparametrics, Low-rank Matrix Estimation etc
SIGMLIIT KanpurSIGML - Special Interest Group on Machine Learning of Computer Science, was born out of an effort to bring together people interested in areas of Machine Learning, Data Mining and related fields. It is an endeavour to bring people who share an excitement in Machine Learning, Computer Vision, NLP and Data Mining to discuss latest developments and research options. The group aims at organizing problem-solving sessions, seminars, research days, workshops and guest lectures.
VisionIIT KanpurWe are a group of faculty and students working on exciting problems on the recently very popular area of Computer Vision and applied Machine Learning as well as on the intersection of those with Signal Processing and Robotics.
