Welcome to the Holzinger Group HCI-KDD

Science is to test crazy ideas, Engineering is to put these ideas into Business: The Holzinger group is doing theoretical, algorithmical, and experimental studies to try to understand intelligence to discover  knowledge in data.

How do we create algorithms that learn from data?

How do we understand intelligence?

How can we extract knowledge from data?

More about the Holzinger Group

Humans are excellent at pattern recognition in dimensions of ≤3 (image above, left side). However, most biomedical data sets are in dimensions much higher than 3 (image above, right), making manual analysis often impossible. Efficient, useable computational methods, algorithms and tools to interactively gain insight into such complex data are a commandment of our time. >Info Poster MM77

The Holzinger Group works consistently 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). This needs a concerted effort, international without boundaries > Expert network
