Big Data and Bioengineering: The Perfect Marriage


Prof. Arlindo Oliveira

Professor in the Department of  Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon


Modern artificial intelligence techniques, heavily based on machine learning approaches, have created the possibility to analyze large volumes of data in many domains, in ways that were inaccessible until now.  Modern bioengineering depends heavily, if not totally, on data based approaches that are able to uncover the knowledge hidden in the large amounts of data generated by genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and other "omics". In this talk, I will describe some methodologies that can be used to extract knowledge from biological data and to direct bioengineering research.
