Join the UNC Program for Precision Medicine in Healthcare (PPMH) for Precision Health @UNC: Machine Learning & Precision Analytics, a virtual mini-symposium on April 14th from 1:00 to 3:00pm. At this interactive event, you will engage in discussion with leading Precision Medicine researchers at UNC. Presenters will explore information sources, data science tools that use the information, and the application of the resulting findings to health care. Another theme will be sources of bias in machine learning and how that bias can be minimized or eliminated.
