C2D3 event
Tuesday, 25 February 2020, 10.00am to 1.30pm

Bayesian hierarchical modelling (BHM) is one of the most powerful modern statistical techniques. It provides a unifying framework for dealing with a diversity of sources of complexity arising from the structure (e.g. dependence) of the data and its associated measurement process. Hierarchical model building strategy involves defining latent unobserved quantities of interest which are organised into a number of levels with distinct interpretations and building probabilistic between the latent quantities and the data.

AI and machine learning are revolutionising the entire healthcare and life science sector. Healthcare currently benefits from AI technology in various aspects including clinical, laboratory and operational areas to reduce costs and to improve patient outcomes and access to care. From harnessing mass pools of data, to drug discovery, medical analytics, clinical trials and diagnostic decision making, AI and machine learning will continue to transform this industry in ways which we are yet to discover.
