About LCDM

The Laboratory for Computation, Data, and Machine Learning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a team of faculty, postdocs, and student researchers who work together to develop and apply computational technologies and sophisticated algorithms to expands the applications of data science. Our research ranges from cosmological data mining, Internet of Things, text analytics, natural language processing, and business analytics.

LCDM was founded in 2002 at the University of Illinois by Professor Robert J. Brunner (then it was called the Laboratory for Cosmological Data Mining) to develop and apply computational technologies to extract cosmological information from the large astrophysical data sets being generated within our community. Since then, we have grown into a larger group of people from variety of academic disciplines.

We have been one of the top twenty users worldwide of the production of supercomputing resources at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.
