Dan Feldman

Director of the Robotics and Big Data Lab, and Senior Lecturer at the Computer Science Department University of Haifa

Current research

Machine learning of Big Data, Internet of Things, Swarm robotics, and 3D-cameras.
I am especially excited about reducing the gap between theoretical and practical algorithms, using my experience in the industry and academy.

Main technique

Core-sets: Semantic compression of data sets into small sets that provably approximate the original data for a given problem. Using merge-reduce (e.g. Spark) the small sets can then be used for solving hard machine learning problems in parallel (on the cloud/network), real-time and on Big streaming data.
