Description

Dr Stephen Weng in the Division of Primary Care, is giving a talk on Thursday 25 January 2018 called “A gentle introduction to using machine-learning for analysis of large health care datasets”.

Presentation overview:
Machine learning teaches computers to do what comes naturally to humans: learn from experience. These algorithms use computational methods to “learn” information directly from data without relying on a predetermined equation as a model. The algorithms adaptively improve their performance as the number of samples available for learning increases. This session will provide a gentle introduction on machine-learning methods, terminology, and demonstrate an application for using machine-learning algorithms in primary care datasets.

This seminar is part of the joint seminar/skills programme organised by the Divisions of Primary Care and Epidemiology & Public Health.

(This seminar date was previously advertised as 5 December 2017 but has been rescheduled to 25 January 2018 ).
