Welcome to the Sigma Research Lab @UChicago


The Strategic IntelliGence for Machine Agents (SIGMA) Lab works on developing cutting-edge machine learning and decision making techniques that can excel in uncertain and complex strategic environments, ranging from national security to e-commerce markets to governmental policy making. The long-term mission of the Sigma Research Lab is to build AI agents that can learn and act optimally when interacting with others in today's increasing connected world. We focus on designing techniques that are both theoretically sound and practically effective by leveraging machineries from optimization, learning, algorithm design, game theory, etc.

We are looking for 2-3 PhD students starting Fall'23. Please read this and check out UChicago CS if interested!
