Computer Science is more than mere machines and code; it is a means for understanding the world, and a method for changing it.

Hi. My name is Steve Hanneke. I am a first-year PhD candidate at the Center for Automated Learning and Discovery at Carnegie Mellon, studying artificial intelligence. My research focuses on machine learning algorithms for analyzing large, incomplete, social science data sets.
Prior to this, I studied for my B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), and pursued research on semi-supervised machine learning with Prof. Dan Roth and other students in the Cognitive Computation Group; you can see my senior thesis for details on some of the things we did. Prior to that, I studied Computer Science at Webster University in St. Louis, MO, where I played around with neural networks and classic AI a bit.
When I have time between classes and research, I enjoy reading books on science, pure mathematics, technology, and philosophy, and occasionally find time for hiking and camping. I've also been known to tinker with computer clusters.
