Time: 6/3/2016, 6/10/2016, 1:30-3:00pm
Place: Geno Cafe (Room E3609)
Short Course: Survival Trees & Forests
Lecturer: Jon Steingrimsson, Department of Biostatistics, JHU.
The first part of the short course will focus on extensions of the CART algorithm to censored outcomes. In the second part, we discuss the most commonly used proposals to handle censoring in the bagging and random forests algorithms. Furthermore, we cover the challenges and some proposed solutions to interpret the output from these ensemble algorithms. In both parts, emphasis will be placed on available software implementations, advantages and disadvantages compared to more traditional regression methods, and the state of theoretical developments of the algorithms.
