MALSAR Author Joins Michigan State
Jaiyu Zhou recently joined the College of Engineering in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering as an assistant professor. He was recruited under the Global Impact Initiative.
Before joining MSU, he was a staff research scientist at Samsung Research America. He is the leading author of the open-source multi-task learning software MALSAR (multi-task learning via structural regularization). The package has included solvers to many state-of-art regularization-based multi-task learning algorithms. The package is firstly introduced in his multi-task tutorial that was given at the Twelfth SIAM International Conference on Data Mining (SDM’12). Zhou also serves as associate editor for Neurocomputing and regularly reviews manuscripts for numerous journals in his field.
Research interests: Large-scale machine learning and data mining, and biomedical informatics.
PhD: Arizona State University, Computer Science (2014)
