Seminar Description
This working seminar focuses on statistical and computational methods for analyzing big data. Big data arise from a wide range of studies in health science research, such as genetics and genomics, environmental health research, comparative effective research, electronic medical records, neuroscience, and social networks. We discuss recent developments in statistical and computational methodology for analyzing big data and health science applications where big data arise. The goal of this seminar is to exchange ideas and stimulate more quantitative research in this challenging and important area.
