Mariam Salloum, Lecturer – PSOE, Computer Science & Engineering 
Databases, Data Mining, and Artificial Intelligence https://profiles.ucr.edu/mariam.salloum mariam.salloum@ucr.edu 

Christian Shelton, Professor, Computer Science and Engineering 
Christian Shelton researches Artificial Intelligence (AI), specializing in statistical machine learning (ML). Machine learning is the academic discipline of studying algorithms that take past experience (data) and use it to improve future performance on a wide variety of tasks in a wide variety of ways. His primary focus is on developing and analyzing algorithms that infer, predict, or otherwise quantify events and processes that evolve over time. https://www.engr.ucr.edu/people/christianshelton.html cshelton@cs.ucr.edu
