Title: Reliability-based Uncertainty Quantification for Intensive Care Unit Data.

Reliability methods and Stochastic models are used to calculate the probability that a structure will avoid sustaining intolerable damage.  It is possible to apply these techniques to a broad class of problems including optimisation, Bayesian inference and history matching since in general they sample from, and estimate the size of, small regions in high dimensional spaces. In these contexts, reliability methods intrinsically provide uncertainty quantification and so are they naturally suited to tackling practical clinical problems where point estimates do not suffice. This talk will focus on a novel approach called Branching Subset Simulation that attempts to overcome the ergodic and efficiency issues encountered when adapting reliability methods for use with intensive care unit data.
