Lars Kotthoff is a postdoctoral researcher at the University
of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, where he works
on automated algorithm configuration and selection and
uses optimization techniques for data mining and machine
learning. He previously held a postdoctoral appointment at
Insight Centre for Data Analytics, Cork, Ireland, and completed his Ph.D. work at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
Barry Hurley is a Ph.D. student in the Insight Centre for
Data Analytics at University College Cork. His research considers the exploitation of machine learning for solving combinatorial decision and optimization problems.
Barry O’Sullivan serves as director of the Insight Centre for
Data Analytics and Pprofessor in the Department of Computer Science at University College Cork. O’Sullivan was
elected a Fellow of ECCAI, the European Coordinating
Committee for Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI), and a Senior
Member of AAAI, the Association for the Advancement of
Artificial Intelligence, in 2012.
