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 Business: 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.
We try to help to answer three grand questions:
Research Field: Computer and Information Science
Technical Area: Machine Learning
Application Area: Health Informatics
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
