Centre for Applied Health Economics Seminar

Presenter: Dr Ping Zhang, Bioinformatician, Menzies Health Institute Queensland

Title: Big Data and Small Data Analytics in Healthcare Research

Seminar Overview -

Big data analytics often involves development of machine learning tools which offers considerable advantages for finding complex patterns within large amounts of healthcare data. However, some limitations or requirements need to be addressed before these analytic tools can be deployed in health care. Small data approaches could mitigate those limitations to derive more value from the analytics. This seminar will explore how data analytics and statistics can be used to improve healthcare research outcomes. Application of machine learning and AI, ways of handling big data and needs of small data approaches will be discussed in this presentation.
