Using Machine Learning to Better Understand and Manage Disease

Supervised machine learning methods infer models that map a set of input variables to an output variable of interest when given data sets consisting of such input-output pairs. The learned models can play important roles in lending insight into a problem domain and in making informative predictions. I will discuss several applications in which my group has developed and applied machine-learning approaches to help understand and manage disease processes.
