Theory of Living Matter Group

Pub meeting

Machine Learning for 'Genomical' data

Theory of Living Matter is back with an informal pub meeting. In this meeting with Sudhakaran Prabakaran (University of Cambridge, Department of Genetics), we will focus on machine learning. The talk will be understandable for a broad scientific audience.

Machine learning (ML) approaches are used to find patterns in genomics data as it is no longer trivial to compute, analyze, and visualize population level exabytes of genomics data that is being generated. This talk will have a general introduction to ML approaches, some examples of where it is being used in biology including some aspects of what we do. I also hope to briefly discuss the differences between Deep Learning, and AI and ML approaches.

After the talk there will be plenty of time for informal discussions. We will serve some snacks and there will be opportunities to order food and drinks.

This event is sponsored by the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute and the Cambridge Philosophical Society.
