The Foreseer research group is led by Dr. Qiaozhu Mei at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. We do cutting-edge research that is broadly related to data mining and information retrieval. We focus on novel methods and applications of information retrieval, text mining, natural language processing, and social network analysis. Our research has found broad applications in Web search and mining, social computing, scientific literature mining, and health informatics. Our research has been supported by various government agencies such as NSF, NIH, and DARPA, and industry leaders such as Microsoft and Yahoo!.
