October 3, 2014 |Data Mining with Project Tycho® Data


Project Tycho® data have been used by investigators at Carnegie Mellon University and Kumamoto University in Japan in collaboration with Project Tycho® to develop a data mining tool named FUNNEL. FUNNEL can automatically detect multiple characteristics of epidemiological time series data such as data errors, effects of external influence, the introduction of vaccines, seasonality effects, and spatial heterogeneity. FUNNEL has recently been presented at the 20th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining and has been published in the proceedings of this conference. We congratulate the authors Dr. Yasuko Matsubara, Dr. Yasushi Sakurai, and Dr. Christos Faloutsos on this great accomplishment and contribution to add value to public health data.
