Algorithms Research Group

21st Century Algorithms


The Algorithms Research Group was formed in December 2007. It will focus on 21st Century Algorithms which seek to address the new demands in today’s environment of computing with massive data. Besides the traditional topics in Algorithms, areas such as streaming algorithms, directed data sampling, machine learning, approximation algorithms, and integration of numerical and combinatorial method are expected to play an important role in the years to come. The goal of this new group is to be at the forefront of conceptual breakthroughs in these areas.
