"Dr. Google Will See You Now: Lessons From the AI Revolution to problems in Biology and Medicine"
Start Date: 3/21/2017Start Time: 4:15 PM
End Date: 3/21/2017End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:

The current revolution in AI has been spurred by two ongoing trends: parallel architectures that make computation faster and "big data" - the ability to collect and share large data sets easily and cheaply.

Ameet Soni will discuss these trends in the context of his research, which develops algorithms to solve problems in biology and medicine. These problems are characterized by complex (and noisy) relationships that overwhelm common approaches in the field.

The projects he will touch on include solutions for protein structure prediction, diagnosing diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and understand gene regulation.

Ameet Soni is currently an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Swarthmore College. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin. Soni's general research interests are in the areas of machine learning and computational biology and medicine.
