PLEASE NOTE THE ROOM CHANGE: We are now meeting in room 203 (Lecture Theatre), Floor 2, Tower Building.
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.
