DSP Faculty Member Anshumali Shrivastava Receives NSF CAREER Award

Rice Assistant Professor Anshumali Shrivastava has received an NSF CAREER award for his project "Hashing and Sketching Algorithms for Resource-Frugal Machine Learning." The project will develop new probabilistic hashing techniques to advance state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms. Apart from being exponentially cheaper, the new algorithms will also be massively parallelizable. The project capitalizes on several recent ideas, including asymmetric hashing, hash-based kernels, densified hashing schemes, sub-linear adaptive sampling, and adaptive sketching, to push learning algorithms to the extreme-scale.
