Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge
The Inference Group.
David MacKay's group
works on machine learning and information theory.
Current projects involve neural networks, automated Go playing,
the design of record-breaking error-correcting codes and quantum error-correcting codes,
and the construction of human-computer interfaces that make use of
adaptive language models.
News - last updated May 2013
From October 1st 2009 to 2014, David MacKay works 4 days per week as Chief Scientific Advisor to the
Department of Energy and Climate Change
On 29th March 2013, David MacKay was appointed Regius Professor of Engineering, and
officially moved on from the Cavendish Laboratory, where he's worked since January 1992,
to the Information Engineering divisionof
the Engineering Department (CUED).
This inference group website will hopefully be preserved but will be mothballed
and superceded by new websites at CUED.
Researchers who would like to work with David MacKay on whole-system energy modelling
are encouraged to look at the
jobs being advertised by Julian Allwood.
We enjoy collaborations with
Cambridge Centre for Energy Studies,
the Computational and Biological Learning Lab, CUED,
and the Rainbow group.
The Inference Group is supported by the Gatsby Foundation
and by a partnership award from IBM Zurich Research Laboratory
