Machine Intelligence Lab (MILAb)

in Handong Global University (HGU)

Our goal is to develop more general and powerful machine learning (ML) algorithms to change the world and help people. We are interested in everything related to ML, especially deep learning (DL) and reinforcement learning (RL).

We are looking for students who are highly motivated and passionate about ML. If interested, please email prof. heeyoul "henry" choi at hchoi (a)
