ASA-NJ chapter events


ASA NJ Chapter 39th Annual Spring Symposium


When - June 29, 2018

Theme - Data Visualization Techniques and Advances in Analytics

Where- Rutgers, RWJ School of Medicine

Trends in data visualization techniques point to increasingly compelling ways statistical models are being used for data mining, inference and prediction. With the rapid developments in internet technology, genomics, financial risk modeling, and exponentially expanding large networks of health care databases, the need to explore data and make meaningful inferences has become the core of the modern data science.

In this symposium, we will bring together experts who will elaborate on the tools useful for tackling modern-day data analysis problems. Talks will be based on clear applications drawn from the technology as well as the pharmaceutical industry. Focus will be on large to very large datasets and approaches in tackling challenges in analytics.
