Welcome to the Holzinger Group …
… where machine learning and biomedical informatics meet.
Science is to test crazy ideas, Engineering is to put these ideas into practice: The Holzinger group is doing theoretical, algorithmical, and experimental studies to try to understand the problem of knowledge discovery from complex data to discover unknown unknowns. Our ultimate goal is contributing towards personalized medicine.
Humans are excellent at pattern recognition in dimensions of ≤3 (image below, left side). However, most biomedical data sets are in dimensions much higher than 3 (image below, right), making manual analysis often impossible. Efficient, useable computational methods, algorithms and tools to interactively gain insight into such “Big Data” are a commandment of our time. >Info Poster MM77
The Holzinger Group works on a synergistic combination of methods from two areas, offering ideal conditions to unravel problems with complex data sets: Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Knowledge Discovery/Data Mining (KDD), with the goal of supporting human intelligence with machine learning (human-in-the-loop). HCI-KDD is an important step towards personalized medicine. > Info Poster MM89
