Andrew Ng's research is in machine learning and in statistical AI algorithms for data mining, pattern recognition, and control. He is interested in the analysis of such algorithms and the development of new learning methods for novel applications. His work also focuses on designing scalable algorithms and addressing the issues of learning from sparse data or data where the patterns to be recognized are "needles in a haystack;" of succinctly specifying complex behaviors to be learned by an agent; and of learning provably correct or robust behaviors for safety-critical systems.
