Abstract

Sufficient dimension reduction has a proven track record of aiding the analysis of high-dimensional complex data. It transforms the problem to a low dimensional projection, while retaining full regression information and imposing few probabilistic models. In this talk, we start with a brief overview of the area of sufficient dimension reduction. We then present some recent developments in both methodology and applications in genetics, biomedical studies, and neuroimaging analysis.
