In this paper, the Cauchy problem associated with the biharmonic equation is investigated. We prove that in principle, the problem is severely ill-posed in the sense of Hadamard. Therefore, we propose a quasi-boundary value-type regularization method for stabilizing the ill-posed problem. Very sharp convergence estimates are established based on some a priori information on the exact solution. Finally, several numerical examples with random data are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
