Previously, he worked as a postdoc in machine learning at Carnegie Mellon, and earned a PhD in computer sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His book Active Learning — an introduction to learning algorithms that are adaptive, curious, or exploratory (if you will) — was published by Morgan & Claypool in 2012; he has also co-organized several workshops on the subject at top international conferences (ICML, NAACL). In his spare time, Burr gets around by bike and plays guitar in the Pittsburgh pop band Delicious Pastries. ♥
