Center for Computing for Life Sciences (CCLS) Presents:
Data Mining and Predictive Analytics – Research Applications
6:00 PM October 13, 2011 SFSU

About the seminar/panel discussion
This is the third seminar of the new CCLS Bay Area Seminar Series. This seminar, in the format of a panel discussion, will provide insights and explore issues regarding the role of data mining and predictive analytics in life sciences with a focus on research applications whereas the prior seminar focused on clinical applications. The panelists will describe the evolution of their experiences with data mining and predictive analytics and how they are using these research processes today. The seminar will address how data can be 1.) aggregated and mined, 2.) applied to heuristics, algorithms, and machine learning and then 3.) characterize interrelated data, interpret results and predict endpoints being studied. This seminar will be useful for statisticians, software developers, machine learning researchers, IT architects and information systems managers in life sciences.
