When old statistical ideas meet modern data science
Speaker: Weining Shen, University of California, Irvine
Host: Fengnan Gao, School of Data Science, Fudan University
Time: 10:00-11:00, November 15, 2018
Location: Zibin N102, Fudan University
Abstract: Modern scientific applications have generated many data sets of complex nature, such as high dimensionality, heterogeneity and unknown structure of interest. In this talk, I will discuss a few ideas on extending classical statistical methods such as regression, the principal component analysis, expectation maximization, and mixture model, to accommodate challenges in those applications. Theoretical properties, numerical results, and applications in biomedical studies will be discussed.
