As you already know, HIIT has seminar sessions also on Mondays. These sessions are going through the different research groups of HIIT hosted in  Otaniemi. Our next speaker is Jaakko Hollmén from "Parsimonious Modelling" group.

All ICS@Aalto researchers are also warmly welcome to attend the seminar!

Parsimonious Modelling

The research group Parsimonious Modelling develops computational methods for data analysis and applies these methods on two particular application fields: cancer genomics and environmental informatics. Both of these application fields exhibit problems of high dimensional data and complex, unknown interactions between measurements.

Parsimonious modeling aims at achieving maximally simple or compact models as a result of the data analysis process. In practical problems, parsimony makes results more understandable and interpretable. For instance, feature variable selection aims at parsimony in terms of the number of variables in the model.

In the presentation, the research group will be presented; both methodological and applied research results will be reviewed.
