About this event

The Minnesota Population Center (MPC) and the Institute for Research in Statistics and its Applications (IRSA) are teaming up to bring you a unique interdisciplinary workshop, Record Linkage Using Machine Learning Methods. 

At this workshop, explore how experts in four distinct fields of work utilize machine learning methods to link databases together. What works? What doesn’t? Leverage their collective knowledge and discover new approaches for overcoming common methodological challenges.
