Keywords: accelerated failure time (AFT); dynamic prediction; joint modeling

Motivated by the analysis of massive electronic health record (EHR) and wearable device data in modern biobanks, we propose a robust and scalable M-estimator, termed the joint model robust estimator (JMRE), for estimating the accelerated failure time (AFT) model for a right-censored event time jointly with a linear mixed model (LMM) for the longitudinal biomarker trajectory. As a semiparametric estimator, JMRE is robust to distribution misspecification in both AFT and LMM models; scalable to biobank data with $10^5 \sim 10^8$ individuals, intensive longitudinal measurements, and a large number of random effects; able to model the time-varying effects on both mean and within-subject variance of the longitudinal biomarker simultaneously; and easily extensible to data with multiple longitudinal biomarkers.
