Predictive Models in Health Research


Lasso, Random Forests, and especially Deep Neural Networks are very popular in data science applications. Do they have a role in health research, and are they likely to replace more traditional statistical models? In this talk I will argue that it depends on the application, the amount of data available, and the purpose of the modeling, with some guidance from the "Occam's razor" principle.
