The Centre for Computational Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML) spans three departments at University College London, Computer Science, Statistical Science, and the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit. The Centre will pioneer an emerging field that brings together statistics, the recent extensive advances in theoretically well-founded machine learning, and links with a broad range of application areas drawn from across the college, including neuroscience, astrophysics, biological sciences, complexity science, etc. There is a deliberate intention to maintain and cultivate a plurality of approaches within the centre including Bayesian, frequentist, on-line, statistical, etc.
UCL is the scientific coordinator of the PASCAL Network of Excellence involving more than 50 sites across Europe and beyond.
There is funding set aside to assist students undertaking data analysis for other departments from across the College. This will be allocated in Sandpits/Clinics when potential users will present their problems and a consensus reached on the most appropriate approach to be applied.
