 Selected Applications in the Area of Data Science and Machine Learning

Dr Karwath will present a selection of potential solutions from the area of machine learning and data science to challenges and problems from biological, chemical and medical domains. This includes the clustering of millions of small compound graphs to find inherent sub-groups within large chemical data sets. The approach presented is based on approximate clustering and high-parallelism. The latest application I will present is concerned with the detection of brain regions in PET scans of Alzheimer patients. These regions are informative to predict Alzheimer when using PET scans. The approach is based on deep 3-D convolutional networks.


The seminars are an opportunity for the CCB Community and external speakers to present their work or topics of interest to the bioinformatics community. 
Wednesday 26 July 2017 12.00 to 1.00 pm.
CCB Large Meeting & Teaching Room, Haworth Building.
