2014 SIGKDD Innovation Award: Pedro Domingos

2014 SIGKDD Innovation Award: Pedro Domingos: 2014 SIGKDD Innovation Award Winner

Prof. Domingos carried out some of the earliest research on mining data streams. His VFDT algorithm was the first to be capable of learning decision trees from streams while guaranteeing that the result is very close to that of batch learning, and remains the fastest decision tree learner available. He went on to generalize the ideas in VFDT to clustering, the EM algorithm, Bayesian network structure learning, and other problems. The resulting VFML toolkit is one of the best open-source resources for stream mining.
