Centre for Applied Statistics and Data Analytics (CAST)

The second Seminar by the Centre for Applied Statistics and Data Analytics (CAST) will be held at the School of Health Sciences, University of Tampere, Finland, at August 17th, 2016. It will gather researchers, other faculty and students interested in applied statistics and data analytics working at the University of Tampere and other Universities, Research Institutes and Companies.

The main aims of the seminar events by CAST are: (i) to bring awareness of the importance of statistics and data analysis in research; (ii) to create a forum of discussion where researchers present their work and research questions followed by discussion and feedback from the audience; (iii) strengthen the links between schools and research groups that might lead to future collaborations in terms of research articles and funding applications.

The visiting speakers of the seminar are Professor Dulal Bhaumik and Research Assistant Professor Runa Bhaumik from University of Illinois at Chicago. Professor Dulal Bhaumik has worked both on applied and theoretical statistics. The talks given by him will be based on his applied work, mainly neuroimaging and neuroconnectivity. He will use fMRI and DTI data to show how brains malfunction for neurological diseases which is very useful to treat patients. Research Assistant Professor Runa Bhaumik in turn is a Computer Scientist who works in the same area as Dulal. Her interest is in image processing. She uses machine learning techniques (such as Support Vector Machine, Random Forest etc.) for classification of subjects with various neurological conditions.

Please spread the information to whom it may concern and register for the event by Friday 12th, at 1:00 p.m.
