Trees. And. Diagnosis. (Live!)

I’ve been invited to give a webinar about our work on trees; it will include material from the previous two posts.

Here’s the Eventbrite link. Get your free ticket!

Here’s the blurb:

Data, Decisions, and Trees

We often say that we want to make decisions “based on data.” What does that really mean? We’ll look at a simple approach to data-based decisionmaking using a representation we might not use every day: the tree. In this webinar, you’ll use data to make trees, and then use the trees to diagnose diseases.

On the surface, trees are very simple. But for some reason — perhaps because we’re less familiar with using trees — people (and by that we mean us) have more trouble than we expect. Anticipate having a couple of “wait a second, let me think about this!” moments.
