Researchers, academics, postdocs, senior PhD students in statistics, machine learning and AI with an interest in healthcare and medicine.
Machine learning and statistics often offer solutions to the same types of problems, but have different merits and provide different advantages. We believe that there is scope for important theoretical and practical advances when these two disciplines join forces to assist clinical practice and medical discoveries. The two proponents are already working together to combine their expertise to develop the next generation of methods for medicine. This workshop aims to bring together these two communities by starting a friendly and deep dialog among them and fostering ideas for areas of collaboration.
Networking and competition:
There will be an interactive networking session at the end of day 1 (Monday 25 March) to encourage biostatisticians and machine learners to plan joint research. This will include refreshments and food and a competition for writing joint abstracts. Prizes for the joint abstract competition will be announced on day 2 of the workshop.
