In recent years, imprecise-probabilistic choice functions have gained growing interest, primarily from a theoretical point of view. These versatile and expressive uncertainty models have demonstrated their capacity to represent decision-making scenarios that extend beyond simple pairwise comparisons of options, accommodating situations of indecision as …
The work on generative random forests has started, but there is a long way to make them practical. This project aims at studying the drawbacks of such models and improving them with better ensemble ideas, gradient boosting, and/or other techniques already employed with decision …
This project aims to compare two different types of generative models: tractable probabilistic circuits and Bayesian networks of bounded tree-width, and potentially have tools to translate between them (when possible). Probabilistic circuits have been recently applied to a number of tasks, but there is …
This internal project aims at developing and testing (for example in classification tasks) a generative model based on probabilistic graphical models for domains with continuous and categorical variables. We want to learn both the graph structure and parameters of such models while constraining their …
An arguably major difficulty for improving causal inferences is the lack of availability of data. While observational data are abundant, interventional data are not. This internal project aims at creating software tools to generate data that can be useful for testing causal learning approaches. …
This internal project aims at designing and development a usable software package for learning and reasoning with probabilistic circuits. Probabilistic circuits are models which can represent complicated mixture models and their computation circuit can be wide and deep. Because they have a structure which …

Whittle sum-product networks [1] model the joint distribution of multivariate time series by leveraging the Whittle approximation, casting the likelihood in the frequency domain, and place a complex-valued sum-product network over the frequencies. The conditional independence relations among the time series can then be …
Knowledge graph embeddings are an important area of research inside machine learning and has become a necessity due to the importance of reasoning about objects, their attributes and relations in large graphs. There have been several approaches that have been explored and can be …
Offline Reinforcement Learning (RL) deals with the problems where simulation or online interaction is impractical, costly, and/or dangerous, allowing to automate a wide range of applications from healthcare and education to finance and robotics. However, learning new policies from offline data suffers from distributional shifts …
One of the main concerns in the recent AI research is that most data-driven approaches preserve the bias or unfairness available in the collected (offline) data in the resulting models, which could lead to harmful social and ethical effects in the society. Fairness-aware machine learning has …
It is widely known that training deep neural networks on huge datasets improves learning. However, huge datasets and deep neural networks can no longer be trained on a single machine. One common solution is to train using distributed systems. In addition to traditional data-centers, …
This internal project aims at studying and devising new bounds for the computational complexity of inferences in probabilistic circuits and their robust/credal counterpart, including approximation results and fixed-parameter tractability. It requires mathematical interest and good knowledge of theory of computation. This is a theoretical …
This internal project aims at implementing a new approach to learning the structure and parameters of Bayesian networks. It is mostly an implementation project, as the novel ideas are already established (but never published, so the approach is novel). It requires high expertise in …
Bayesian networks are a popular model in AI. Credal networks are a robust version of Bayesian networks created by replacing the conditional probability mass functions describing the nodes by conditional credal sets (sets of probability mass functions). Next to their nodes, Bayesian networks are …
The design of collective intelligence, i.e. the ability of a group of simple agents to collectively cooperate towards a unifying goal, is a growing area of machine learning research aimed at solving complex tasks through emergent computation [1, 2]. The interest in these techniques …
Simulation plays an important role in analyzing complex industrial systems when analytical solutions are unavailable. It has been successfully applied to a variety of areas, such as supply chain systems, healthcare systems, and manufacturing systems.Simulation optimization, i.e., the search for a design or solution …
Introduction: Artificial intelligence (AI) has shown great promise in different domains including the clinical domain. However, the applications of the developed AI model in clinical practices remained limited mainly due to the lack of model explainability. Clinicians, in general, want to know why an …
In wind farms, one source of reduction in power generation by the turbines is the reduction of wind speed in the wake downstream of each turbine's rotor. Namely, a turbine downstream in the wind direction of another will effectively experience wind with a reduced …
In a classification task, some instances are classified more robustly than others. Namely, even with a large modification of the training set, these instances (in the test set) will be assigned to the same class. Other instances are non-robust in the sense that a …
