In this tutorial course, we will address learning from multiple studies. They can often be fused together to yield to a more effective overall inference than individual studies alone. Such effective fusion learning or simply fusion learning the right way is of vital importance, especially in light of the trove of data nowadays collected routinely from various sources in all domains and at all time. In this tutorial, the minimum knowledge is assumed.
