Inferential Challenges for Large Spatio-Temporal Data Structures (17w5153)

December 3, 2017 - December 8, 2017
Banff International Research Station (BIRS), The Banff Centre, Corbett Hall, 107 Tunnel Mountain Drive
Banff, AB T1L 1H5 Canada

A range of inference methodologies are in use for spatio-temporal data, and the complexity and nature of each problem dictates the nature of the methodology used. The high dimensionality of spatio-temporal data often means inference methodologies exhibit a combination of model simplifications, approximations of estimators and likelihood functions, and/or computational and algorithmic efficiencies. Unlike many other ‘big data’ problems, however, an understanding of the physical properties of the spatio-temporal process in question often enables many simplifying assumptions to be made…

The advent of high-throughput DNA sequencing has opened the possibility of detecting rare genetic variants that may be involved in complex diseases. To establish involvement of rare variants in complex traits, family samples are better suited than samples of unrelated subjects because, in a family, multiple affected members are more likely than unrelated affected individuals to carry the same rare variant from the basic principles of inheritance. A common need in these settings is to account for various forms of…
