Estimators targeting overlap weighted effects have been proposed to address the challenge of poor overlap, and methods enabling flexible machine learning for nuisance models address model misspecification.
Bayesian decision theory provides an elegant framework for acting optimally under uncertainty when tractable posterior distributions are available.

We learn disease progression patterns using Hidden Markov Models (HMM) and distill them into distinct trajectories using visualization methods.
In real world applications like healthcare, it is usually difficult to build a machine learning prediction model that works universally well across different institutions.
Clinical researchers use disease progression models to understand patient status and characterize progression patterns from longitudinal health records.
Here, we present a probabilistic model for dimensionality reduction to discover signal that is enriched in the target dataset relative to the background dataset.
The proposed method is favorable for healthcare applications because in additional to improved prediction performance, relationships among the different risks and risk factors are also identified.
