His Omni Lab for Intelligent Visual Engineering and Science (OLIVES) group approaches their research from two avenues: robust learning and learning with limited labels. Dr. AlRegib and his team develop algorithms that can robustly operate under challenging, real-world conditions through weakly supervised learning, back-propagated gradients, hyperpolar classification, and transfer learning. They compiled several large-scale datasets to test and develop these algorithms, which will advance industry areas like autonomous driving, remote repositioning, smart and connected health care, defense models design, and computational seismic interpretation.
The OLIVES group also learns to characterize data using limited labels via weakly or semi-supervised learning and sequence modeling. In this area, Dr. AlRegib and his researchers have developed important datasets as well as an interactive tool for salt interpretation benchmarking in large subsurface volumes. The group has been known in the community as the first and the lead in developing effective machine learning methods for seismic interpretation. Limited label techniques hold significant potential for applications such as subsurface lithology, structure and stratigraphy characterization, material characterization, optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis, fundus images analysis, and medical imaging.
