The meeting will focus on topics likely related to forecasting, prediction models and ensemble Learning
Prof Yael Grushka-Cockayne will speak at our June Meeting https://www.hbs.edu/faculty/Pages/profile.aspx?facId=263650
Associate Professor Yael Grushka-Cockayne's research focuses on forecasting and behavioral decision-making. In 2014, Yael was named one of "21 Thought-Leader Professors" in Data Science. In collaboration with Heathrow airport, she recently developed a real-time predictive system, that forecasts transfer passengers’ connection times, to improve passenger experience and airport resource deployment.
If you have flown through Heathrow, I am sure you'll agree that improving the experience of flying through Heathrow is a pretty enormous task !! Prof Grushka-Cockayne recently spoke at a women in data science meeting, and we were all incredibly impressed by her work and also her storytelling ability. She is an excellent speaker and we are sure her experience of developing ensemble prediction algorithms on large-scale, streaming, noisy real-world data will have important lessons for all of us in genomics.
We will plan to have a social gathering of Boston R/Bioconductor Genomics Folks in New York during the Bioconductor conference (June 24-17).
Please sign up, let us know your going so we can organize to a social gathering in NYC. If we can connect before the meeting, perhaps we even can carpool or share Bostonian tips on NYC ;-)
The meeting sold out last year, so register early :-))
BioC 2019: Where Software and Biology Connect
When: June 24 - 27, 2019
What: Developer Day, Main Conference, Symposium
Where: NYU (june 24th Developer Day) and Rockefeller, New York City, USA (June 25-27th)
Slack: Bioconductor Team (#bioc2019 channel)
Developer Day at NYU Langone School of Medicine (June 24)
Main Conference at Rockefeller University (June 25-26)
Robert Gentleman Symposium at Rockefeller University (June 27)
This conference highlights current developments within and beyond Bioconductor. Morning scientific talks and afternoon workshops provide conference participants with insights and tools required for the analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data. ‘Developer Day’ precedes the main conference on June 24, providing developers and would-be developers an opportunity to gain insights into project direction and software development best practices.
