BISTI Investigator Seminar: Heterogeneous ensembles for biomedical problems and DREAM challenges

Abstract: In many biomedical prediction scenarios, it is difficult to identify the ideal predictor due to incompleteness of knowledge and/or data quality issues. In such scenarios, a powerful approach is to learn heterogeneous ensemble predictors that are learnt from a large and diverse set of base predictors. This talk will describe the basics of these predictors, as well as our work, supported by a BD2K-supported R01, on novel algorithms for learning such predictors from large biomedical datasets. Preliminary results from an innovative application of these predictors to DREAM Challenges will also be presented.

The Biophysical Society Annual Meeting

As science becomes increasingly interdisciplinary, the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting continues its long-held reputation for bringing together leading scientists from the all over the world who work at the interface of the life, physical, and computational sciences.
The dynamic five-day Meeting provides attendees with opportunities to share their latest unpublished findings and
learn the newest emerging techniques and applications.
Despite its nearly 6,500 attendees, the Meeting is noted for maintaining its “small meeting” feel beginning with the Saturday subgroup symposia, which allow attendees to meet within their scientific communities. It is also known for its vitality, demonstrated by the over 900 highly interactive daily poster presentations, the more than 500 speakers selected from submitted abstracts, the many career development programs for those working in academia, industry, and agencies throughout the world, and its advocacy and education programs
