Powerful new computational methodologies are being developed for analyzing today’s large and complex data sets. For example, machine learning methods provide insight in biomedicine by recognizing, classifying and exploiting complex patterns and probabilistic models for reasoning under uncertainty. Cutting edge research in the data science and machine learning communities seeks to create novel ways of discovering new knowledge from data, presenting discovered information to users, facilitating associations and guiding decision-making in clinical settings.

Researchers often work collaboratively on problems that span sequencing and imaging to data mining of medical records, comparative analysis of drug efficacy and personalized treatments for cancer. Our 2018 conference will focus on recent advancements in data science and machine learning that impact biomedicine and the new challenges that lie ahead.

Confirmed speakers include:

 Payel Das, Technical Lead, AI Solutions, IBM Watson Research Center; Casey Greene, Assistant Professor, Systems Pharmacology & Translational Therapeutics, UPenn; Jennifer Neville,  Associate Professor, Computer Science and Statistics, Purdue; Lucila Ohno-Machado, Professor, Biomedical Informatics, UC San Diego; and  Christopher Ré, Associate Professor, Computer Science, Stanford University.
