Eli Upfal was awarded a research grant from Yahoo! for his research on "Rigorous and Efficient Statistical Tools for Large Data Sets."

This project focuses on developing rigorous statistical tools for processing and analyzing massive data sets. This work aims at enhancing and complementing the core experimental and heuristics work in machine learning and data mining. Rigorous statistical evaluation of discoveries is particularly important when analyzing relatively rare events in applications such as identifying system abnormalities, predicting system faults and fraud detection.
