Probabilistic Approaches for Computational Biology and Medicine


at Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine Summer School on Sep 25, 2013 [pdf]
Neil D. Lawrence, University of Sheffield


In this talk I’ll discuss some of the challenges in personalized medicine and consider some of the implications for machine learning models. I’ll introduce the probabilistic approach to machine learning, with a particular focus on Gaussian models. Giving some examples of applications I’ll discuss Bayesian approaches to regression modelling and lead into Gaussian process models.
