Science is to test crazy ideas, Engineering is to put these ideas into Business …

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

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 (human-in-the-loop). HCI-KDD is an important step towards personalized medicine. > Info Poster MM89
