Welcome to RIT MILOS LAB

The Machine Learning Optimization and Signal Processing Laboratory (MILOS LAB) was founded in 2015 by Professor Panos P. Markopoulos at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Our research is on theory and algorithms for machine learning, and signal processing and it is supported by multiple federal agencies and industry partners.

Our mission:

  • Conduct fundamental research in the areas of machine learning and signal processing.

  • Deliver practical solutions to technological challenges that are relevant to today’s society and of interest to the nation.

  • Provide high-quality and inclusive education and mentor the next generation of innovators and technology leaders.

Research Expertise

Our expertise is on theory and algorithms for machine learning and signal processing. Our research tools are applied mathematics and computing.
