# GRU-ODE-Bayes: Continuous modeling of sporadically-observed time series

@inproceedings{Brouwer2019GRUODEBayesCM, title={GRU-ODE-Bayes: Continuous modeling of sporadically-observed time series}, author={Edward De Brouwer and Jaak Simm and Adam Arany and Yves Moreau}, booktitle={NeurIPS}, year={2019} }

Modeling real-world multidimensional time series can be particularly challenging when these are sporadically observed (i.e., sampling is irregular both in time and across dimensions)-such as in the case of clinical patient data. [...] Key Method We bring these two ideas together in our GRU-ODE-Bayes method. Expand
