Summary Sentence: CSE guest presents on the efficacy of big data in healthcare and climate applications

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.


Many emerging applications of big data involve time series data. In this talk, Yan Liu will discuss a collection of machine learning and data mining approaches to effectively analyze and model large-scale time series and spatio-temporal data. Experiment results will be shown to demonstrate the effectiveness of models in healthcare and climate applications.


About Yan Liu:

Yan Liu is an assistant professor in Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California from 2010. Before that, she was a Research Staff Member at IBM Research. She received her Master's of Science and Ph.D. degree from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004 and 2007.
