Dear Participants of the “AI in Life Science I” workshop

Due to the current situation in the Czech republic regarding COVID-19 pandemy we decided to rearrange the planned workshop as follows:

  • All presentations will be on-line and we also plan that all participants will join the virtual meeting on-line
  • The hands-on practical part will be postponed to make possible meetings of trainers and trainees in person in close future. The second day of the workshop is therefore canceled
  • The coordinates of the meeting place will be sent this Friday, October 23. We plan to use GoTo meeting platform.
  • Limit of the meeting is 100 people, registration is necessary to get the key to enter lecture room

We are looking forward to welcome all of you on October 26 at the first virtual “AI in Life Science “ workshop

Jiri Vondrasek, Daniel Georgiev and Jiri Damborsky – organizers

This workshop will provide a basic introduction to machine learning and its application in Life Sciences, with a special focus on molecular and cell biology. Data-driven approaches penetrate various scientific disciplines, including the fields of biology, biochemistry and biotechnology. Novel technologies of high-throughput data collection and advanced data analysis, such as deep neural networks, offer exceptional opportunities for the development of very complex and accurate mathematical models. The theoretical lectures will cover main methods, algorithms and technologies, illustrate their use in biology and biochemistry research using real-life examples. Hands-on practicals will provide participants with essential skills for the application of machine learning methods and software tools for solving problems in Life Sciences. We plan to continue in our effort to organize follow-ups of this meeting and focus on challenging issues in life science disciplines approachable by AI technology.
