Research axis 1: Unsupervised learning

Scientific locks related to unsupervised learning are numerous, concerning the clustering outcome validity, the ability to manage different kinds of data, the missing data questioning, the dimensionality of the data set,... Many of them are addressed by the team, leading to publication achievements, often with a specific package delivery (sometimes upgraded as a software or even as a platform grouping several software). Because of the variety of the scope, it involves nearly all the permanent team members, often with PhD students and some engineers. The related works are always embedded inside a probabilistic framework, typically model-based approaches but also model-free ones like PAC-Bayes (PAC stands for Probably Approximately Correct), because such a mathematical environment offers both a well-posed problem and a rigorous answer.
