Advances of Machine Learning in Theory & Applications





Publications

Probably the most prized, tangible outcome of the AMALTHEA Program are the publications that were produced through its direct or indirect support by the undergraduate participants, the graduate students and the faculty mentors. These publications are Technical Reports (TRs), Theses & Dissertations, Conference Papers, Journal Papers and Program Proceedings. Undegraduate student authors are indicated in orange color.




Technical Reports

So far, AMALTHEA has supported the compilation of Technical Reports (TR), which were authored by the undergraduate student participants, while obtaining feedback from their assigned mentors. The finalized versions of these TRs were then presented to the AB members during the Program's Symposium at the end of the summer experience. These TRs are:
