Extending statistical boosting algorithms for biomedical research

This project aims to extend statistical ‘beyond the mean’ boosting algorithms for particular biomedical research questions: The main topics are (1) the development of methods to compute confidence intervals and to assess significance, (2) the development of specific loss functions to optimize point predictions and prediction intervals for biomedical forecasting and (3) the extension of multi-dimensional boosting algorithms for joint modelling of multiple endpoints in clinical studies.
