Youssef Marzouk (MIT)
Title Talk: LIDS Seminar Speaker: Youssef Marzouk Affiliation: MIT Abstract: Bayesian inference for non-Gaussian state-space models is a ubiquitous problem with applications ranging from geophysical data assimilation to mathematical finance. We will discuss how deterministic couplings between probability distributions enable new solutions to this problem. We first consider filtering in high-dimensional models with nonlinear (potentially chaotic) dynamics and sparse observations in space and time. While the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) yields robust ensemble approximations of the filtering distribution in this…Find out more »
Learning Engines for Healthcare: Using Machine Learning to Transform Clinical Practice and Discovery
Mihaela van der Schaar (University of California, Los Angeles)
Title Talk: LIDS Seminar Speaker: Mihaela van der Schaar Affiliation: University of California, Los Angeles Abstract: The overarching goal of my research is to develop cutting-edge machine learning, AI and operations research theory, methods, algorithms, and systems to understand the basis of health and disease; develop methodology to catalyze clinical research; support clinical decisions through individualized medicine; inform clinical pathways, better utilize resources & reduce costs; and inform public health. To do this, Prof. van der Schaar is creating what she…Find out more »
