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.

What are we doing?

Welcome to the Holzinger Group – where machine learning and health informatics meet

  • Today the problem are heterogeneous, probabilistic, high-dimensional and complex data sets. The challenge is to learn from such data to discover knowledge, and to help to make decisions under uncertainty.
  • 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.
  • This needs an international concerted effort without boundaries (see > Expert network),  and a comittment to train the next generation of data scientists (interested students please proceed to the > MSc/PhD seminar)
