The Academy will fund the project ‘Model Management Systems (MLDB)’, following a consortium application with Prof. Aristides Gionis from Aalto University. The funding for my research group is 400,000€. Link to decision: aka.fi/mldb.
The news is particularly exciting, as I aim to expand my research to machine learning systems – besides topics I’ve usually worked on. To get some idea about the research we plan to do, see this pre-print https://arxiv.org/abs/1904.00079 (currently under submission).
