In recent years machine learning and artificial intelligence have been on the rise and progress has been made on problems that previously have been tackled with more traditional mathematical and statistical modelling. Examples of this includes image segmentation, automatic control and medical diagnostics. During this workshop we will discuss the pros and cons of machine learning versus mathematical/statistical models. We will also look at how problem-specific features might affect the choice of method and lastly discuss how the two approaches can be combined within a united modelling framework.
