In this session of the NC TraCS Machine Learning seminar series Michael Kosorok, PhD, will present on recent developments in Machine Learning and how these developments will impact and advance Precision Medicine. Precision medicine is "an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person." This approach will allow doctors and researchers to predict more accurately which treatment and prevention strategies for a particular disease will work in which groups of people.
