The Title of Speech: Data Mining for Novel Discovery in Bioinformatics and Medical Data Analytics

Abstract of Speech:

Bioinformatics and medical data analysis has become more accurate with the emergence of modelling methods based on data mining development. The huge quantities of data and escalating demands of modern biomedical research increasingly require the sophistication and power of computational techniques for their novel discovery. In this talk, I will demonstrate data mining methods for gathering high-quality approximations and modelling of genomic and medical data analytics.
