Working Groups

Department of Biostatistics & Informatics

In addition to a weekly department seminar, there are several working groups that meet monthly to discuss specific biostatistical methods or problems. The goal of the working groups is to bring together faculty, research staff, and students to discuss these specific topics in a more focused environment. Working group presentations may be journal clubs, work-in-progress updates, or opportunities for students to practice their conference presentations.‚Äč

Machine Learning Working Group


Paused until fall of 2020.

The Machine Learning Working Group brings together everyone interested in the theory and applications of machine learning. We focus on new and state of the art research and aim. Some discussions are purely explanatory and others aim to find a working example of the method/theory in question relevant to our fields. Anyone can nominate a paper or their own research and lead a discussion around it. There are no restrictions on the discussion topic, as long as it is machine learning related.
