At UFV, I regularly teach upper-level courses in the areas of AI and Data Mining (e.g. COMP 380 Intro to AI, COMP 381 Machine Learning, COMP 455 Extreme Computing, COMP 482 Natural Language Processing, COMP 331 Data Quality). I also teach introductory programming courses (e.g. COMP 120 Computing for the Sciences, COMP 155 Object Oriented Programming).


Our book Methods for Mining and Summarizing Text Conversations is now available online from Morgan Claypool and in print from Amazon, Chapters, Powell's and elsewhere.
