FF Challenge Presentation at NIH OBSSR Methodology Seminar

Fri, Oct 12, 2018, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

NIH OBSSR Methodology Seminar: Predictive Modeling for Behavioral and Social Sciences Health Research

This one-day methodology seminar sponsored by the NIH OBSSR will showcase principles and techniques for prediction modeling from machine learning via specific case examples presented by scientists who are applying predictive algorithms to health-related behavioral and social sciences data. This seminar is intended for scientific program and review officers and other interested NIH staff, fellows, or intramural scientists engaged in evaluating research proposals or conducting research featuring predictive algorithms. Attendees will gain a broad understanding and appreciation for the capabilities of prediction modeling to advance research in health by complementing the more traditional and exclusive focus on explanation. This workshop will include a public access video archive. The seminar will not be live webcast. In person attendance is encouraged.

As part of this seminar, Matthew Salganik will present on predictive modeling and the Fragile Families Challenge. For more information, see the NIH event listing.
