Team presentation

SELECT is a project-team involved in statistical modelling. It is essentially concerned with model selection problems in statistical learning. SELECT is interested in hidden structure models, statistical pattern recognition, and most generally in statistical decision problems. Its application areas are Reliability, Microarray data analysis and Philogeny.

Research themes

SELECT is aiming to propose tools in models and variables selection. Those tools are based on penalized likelihood criteria essentially designed from a non asymptotic point of view using concentration inequalities or from a Bayesian point of view taking profit of the modelling purpose. The research is oriented towards applications for supervised classification models and detection of abrupt changes in signal processing.

International and industrial relations

SELECT has regular collaborations with the Rearch Departement of EDF. Mambers of SELECT are in the European Network of Excellence PASCAL project (FP6).
