  1. 1. Predictive Healthcare : Cervical Cancer Screening Risk Stratification and Genetic Disease Markers

    Author : Nicholas Baltzer; Jan Komorowski; Mark Jit; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bioinformatics; Cervical Cancer; Screening; Computer Science; Algorithmics; Machine Learning; Genetics; SNPs; Rough Sets; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : The use of Machine Learning is rapidly expanding into previously uncharted waters. In the medicine fields there are vast troves of data available from hospitals, biobanks and registries that now are being explored due to the tremendous advancement in computer science and its related hardware.

  2. 2. Predictive eyes precede retrieval : visual recognition as hypothesis testing

    Author : Linus Holm; Timo Mäntylä; Lars Nyberg; David Melcher; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; declarative memory; face perception; object recognition; scene recognition; eye movements; visual awareness; recollection; familiarity; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Does visual recognition entail verifying an idea about what is perceived? This question was addressed in the three studies of this thesis. The main hypothesis underlying the investigation was that visual recognition is an active process involving hypothesis testing. READ MORE

  3. 3. Learning local predictive accuracy for expert evaluation and forecast combination

    Author : Oscar Oelrich; Mattias Villani; Francesco Ravazzolo; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bayesian; forecast combination; predictive density; Gaussian process; bootstrap; Bayes factors; model selection; Bayesian predictive synthesis; nonparametric methods; power transformation; expected log predictive density; variable selection; statistik; Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers that study several topics related to expert evaluation and aggregation. Paper I explores the properties of Bayes factors. Bayes factors, which are used for Bayesian hypothesis testing as well as to aggregate models using Bayesian model averaging, are sometimes observed to behave erratically. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exercise Testing in Firefighters : Work Capacity and Cardiovascular Risk Assessment in a Low-Risk Population

    Author : Anna Carlén; Eva Nylander; Mikael Gustafsson; Meriam Åström Aneq; Henrik Engblom; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Background. Firefighting is one of the most physically demanding occupations and it requires a high cardiorespiratory fitness level. READ MORE

  5. 5. Predictive Modelling of Heavy Metals in Urban Lakes

    Author : Martin Lindström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Predictive modelling; heavy metals; lakes; urban influences; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Sedimentology; sedimentologi;

    Abstract : Heavy metals are well-known environmental pollutants. In this thesis predictive models for heavy metals in urban lakes are discussed and new models presented. The base of predictive modelling is empirical data from field investigations of many ecosystems covering a wide range of ecosystem characteristics. READ MORE
