Human-learned lessons about machine learning in public health surveillance

Description: 

Presented December 13, 2018.

For public health surveillance, is machine learning worth the effort? What methods are relevant? Do you need special hardware? This talk was motivated by these and other questions asked by ISDS members. It will focus on providing practical—and slightly opinionated—advice about how to determine whether machine learning could be a useful tool for your problem.
