Welcome to Computer Learning Research Centre

We are world leaders in developing machine learning algorithms. Our centre was founded at Royal Holloway, University of London in 1998 and attracted a strong team of researchers.

- Vladimir Vapnik & Alexey Chervonenkis (founders of statistical learning theory)
- Alexander Gammerman & Vladimir Vovk (inventors of Conformal Predictor)
- Chris Watkins (inventor of Q-Learning)
- Glenn Shafer (founder of Dempster–Shafer theory)
- Jorma Rissanen (inventor of Minimum Description Length principle)
- Leonid Levin (co-founder of NP-completeness theory)
