Апстракт: In the first part of this talk we will present a novel sampling-based structured regression method for prediction on top of temporal networks. The algorithm allows efficient learning of an ensemble model by automatically skipping the entire re-training or some phases of the training process in an evolving environment. In conducted experiments the new method was about 140 time faster than alternative structured regression approaches while it was also more accurate as evident on modeling the H3N2 Virus Influenza network. The second part of the talk will describe an efficient algorithm to uncover the underlying dependency structure in high dimensional data. This is achieved by relaying on Cholesky decomposition to learn a sparse Gaussian Markov Random Field. The new method is applied to discover the connectivity structure among gene expressions in septic patients.
