Simon Olsson (Freie Universität Berlin, Germany)
In this talk I will to motivate and outline some general problems and opportunities for machine learning in molecular and biomedical sciences. I will then give three different examples of how we have used three different branches of machine learning in the molecular sciences to target very different albeit all challenging problems[1,2,3]. Finally, I will discuss future directions and outstanding problems.
Simon Olsson is a graduate of Biochemistry (MSc) and Bioinformatics (PhD) from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Olsson was awarded a prestigious independent postdoctoral research grant from the Danish Council for Independent Research to join ETH Zürich and IRB Bellinzona as a postdoctoral researcher.
