Remarks / more information:

Dijkstra, TjeerdMachine Learning and Big Data are ever more popular. What makes this Machine Learning so exciting compared to "good old" statistics? In my view machine learning is statistics for the data challenges of the 21st century, such as data sets with a large number variables (e.g, omics data), large number of observations (e.g. genome wide association studies) or a large amounts of missing data. Besides this general outlook, I will introduce some concepts from machine learning e.g. cross-validation, support vector machines and tree-based classifiers using clinical data as examples.
