MAPLE Lab @ UMBC

Multi-Agent Planning and Learning Lab

January 16, 2004

Undergraduate Research Position Open (This position has been filled)

Dr. desJardins is looking for one or two CMSC undergraduates to work on an NSF-funded research project. The project, which is a collaborative effort with Dr. Kiri Wagstaff at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, is investigating ways to incorporate background knowledge into machine learning techniques. Our current application areas are classifying and clustering sky catalog data, and identifying earth-science images for downloading across a limited-bandwidth channel. Involvement with the project could be through an independent study project (499) or as a paid hourly position.

Minimal qualifications are:
- Junior or senior standing (preferably graduating December 2004 or May 2005)
- A GPA of at least 3.5

Strongly preferred qualifications are:
- An A in CMSC 341
- CMSC 441 and 471
- Some background in astronomy

If you are interested in learning more about the project, the MAPLE Lab, or applying for a position, please contact Dr. desJardins by e-mail, or phone (410-455-3967), or stop by ITE 337 if her door is open.
