ECE Associate Professor Waheed Bajwa has been awarded a grant from the Army Research Office (ARO) for the project titled "Statistical learning for the modern datasets: Generalization bounds and near-optimal learning algorithms." The 3-year, $360,000 award will advance the state-of-the-art in statistical learning theory and lead to computationally efficient algorithms for machine learning. While the statistical learning framework has long played a central role in advancing our understanding of machine learning systems, there is an interest in looking afresh at the questions of generalization
