Statistics Seminars: Nonparametric predictive inference for diagnostic test thresholds

Presented by Frank Coolen, Durham University

10 December 2015 16:20 in Elvet Hill House, room EH113

In 2D and 3D ROC analysis, setting thresholds for classification is often
the most important decision. In this work, we consider an alternative to
the commonly applied maximisation of the Youden index, by explicitly
considering the use of the classification procedure for a specific number of
future patients.
(Joint work with Manal Alabdulhadi and Tahani Coolen-Maturi)
