Biostatistics short course: Incorporating Functional Data into Statistical Models

December 2, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

In this short course, Todd Ogden, PhD, Columbia University, will discuss incorporating functional data into statistical models. Functional data is all around us. Vast quantities of data are routinely gathered from accelerometers and other wearable devices, smartphones, imaging modalities, and many other sources. The term “functional data” refers to any data that can be thought of as multiple observations over some continuum. Examples includes near-infrared spectra, growth curves, 2D or 3D images, time series of ecological momentary assessments (EMA), density functions or histograms, data from electroencephalography (EEG) or magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) studies, and many others. Register for short course by November 30, 2022.
