Michael Louis Wick

NEW: The Inferning workshop will return to ICML this year, and we are excited to announce that we will employ an open review process for evaluating submitted papers (with OpenReview.net)! Please consider participating in the open review process, submitting a paper, and helping us better understand the interactions between learning and inference.

Michael Wick is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Massachusetts working with Andrew McCallum in the Information Extraction and Synthesis Laboratory. His research in developing new statistical learning and inference algorithms for large-scale graphical models is driven by the demands of real-world applications such as information extraction, data integration, and knowledge base construction. In 2009 he received the Yahoo! Award for Excellence in Search and Mining and in 2010 he received the Yahoo! Key Scientific Challenges award. He is also an organizer of the 2012 and 2013 ICML workshops Inferning: Interactions Between Inference and Learning. He is a former TA for Graphical Models (CMPSCI 691), and a former organizer for the Machine Learning and Friends lunch.
