Machine Learning and Biomedicine: Machine Learning Without Tears

ICHS Seminar Series: Peter Norvig 

Recent advances in machine learning have enabled impressive achievements in a wide class of applications including image recognition, autonomous driving, speech recognition, machine translation, and game playing. It is an exciting time to be a PhD researcher in machine learning. But what about the scientist or physician who just wants to understand her data, and maybe make some predictions? This talk addresses the current and near-future state of the art for this even-wider class of applications.

Talk: 4:00-5:00pm
Reception: 5:00-6:00pm
