Title: Deep learning for genomics and bio-medicine

Speaker: Professor James Zou, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Stanford University

Summary: Recent breakthroughs in high-throughput genomic and biomedical data are transforming biological sciences into "big data" disciplines. In parallel, progress in deep neural networks are revolutionizing fields such as image recognition, natural language processing and, more broadly, AI. In this talk I'll explore some of the exciting intersection between these two advances. I'll describe some recent developments in deep learning and discuss how we can adapt these approaches to biomedical data.

高通量基因组和生物医学数据的最新突破正在将生物科学转变为“大数据”学科。同时,深层神经网络的进步正在彻底改变诸如图像识别,自然语言处理等领域,更概括地说,是AI。在这次演讲中,我将探讨这两个领域之间的一些振奋人心的交集。我将介绍深度学习的一些最新发展,并讨论如何使这些方法适应生物医学数据。

Bio: I am an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science, Computer Science (courtesy) and Electrical Engineering (courtesy) at Stanford University. I work on a wide range of problems in machine learning (from proving mathematical properties to designing new probabilistic models) and am especially interested in applications in human genomics. I received my Ph.D. from Harvard University in May 2014 and was fortunate to be a member of Microsoft Research New England. Before this, I completed Part III in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and was a Simons fellow at U.C. Berkeley.

我是斯坦福大学生物医学数据科学的副教授,同时兼任斯坦福计算机科学和电气工程的教职。我对机器学习领域的各种问题都有做研究,范围包括了从证明数学属性到设计新的概率模型,此外我还对人类基因组学中的应用特别感兴趣。我于2014年5月从哈佛大学博士毕业,并有幸成为了微软新英格兰的一员。在此之前,我在剑桥大学完成了Part III in Mathematics, 还是UC Berkeley 的 Simons fellow.
