Speaker: Dr Oliver Dukes, Ghent University Title: "How to obtain valid tests and confidence intervals for treatment effects after confounder selection" Abstract: The problem of how to best select variables for confounding adjustment forms one of the key challenges in the evaluation of exposure or treatment effects in observational studies. Routine practice is often based on stepwise selection procedures that use hypothesis testing, change-in-estimate assessments or the lasso, which have all been criticised for not giving sufficient priority to the selection of…

Speaker: Dr Christopher Yau, University of Birmingham and The Alan Turing Institute Title: "Probabilistic approaches for optimal sequential feature acquisition" Abstract: In many real-world data-driven problems, the evidence to support decisions is gathered sequentially and not all measurements are available immediately. For instance, in medical diagnosis, a clinician may order a series of tests and, based on their outcomes, order further tests to determine the disease state of a patient. Each patient disease classification is therefore associated with a “diagnostic trajectory” charting…
