Research Projects

Increased computational resources and data availability have triggered a new era of machine learning. Data science is motivated by more capable computing infrastructure, yet there is still need for converting algorithms into adisory systems and automation solutions. Advisory system development requires re-tooling of machine learning methods. The BYU PRISM group conducts research in methods and applications of control systems, optimization, and machine learning.

Find the Right Experience

Work with a graduate student by sponsoring a research project with a graduate student fellowship or a sponsored research contract. Graduate students work closely with companies to research and apply the latest machine learning methods. Many join the sponsoring company upon graduation.
