Unsupervised feature extraction applied to bioinformatics

Unsupervised feature extraction applied to bioinformatics

In his new book, Professor Y-h Taguchi, from Chuo University, Tokyo, Japan, takes two classical mathematical techniques, principal component analysis and tensor decomposition, and demonstrates how they can be used to perform feature selection in his cutting-edge research. Both unsupervised learning methods are applied to carry out feature extraction in a wide range of ‘large p small n’ problems. This […]

Nesta: Collective intelligence, people-powered results and experimentation

People are participating in the 100 Day Challenge.

The world is changing faster than ever, and solutions to the challenges faced by governments, the health and public sectors and educational institutions need to be innovative and inventive to match. At the Nesta foundation, experts are using research-based evidence to come up with frameworks and programmes to support those people trying to solve some of Europe’s trickiest public conundrums. […]

Artificial intelligence allows quick and easy diagnosis of pancreatic cancer

Artificial intelligence allows quick and easy diagnosis of pancreatic cancer

The pancreas is an important organ that regulates food digestion and blood sugar levels. Cancers commonly arise in the pancreas, leading to death for over 50,000 patients per year in the U.S. alone. This is due to a lack of effective therapies and a low survival rate for this disease since symptoms arise only in the late stages of disease. […]

Building artificial intelligence for social good

A science research article about Professor Tran-Thanh work developing AI algorithms aimed at tackling societal problems and his work focuses on increasing security for AI.

Artificial intelligence is one of the most disruptive technologies nowadays and as such is considered both an opportunity and a threat to society. On the one hand, it could make us vulnerable as we trust machines to make more and more decisions that so far have been reserved for humans. On the other hand, it has the potential to revolutionise […]

Computational methods of researching cancer treatments

In this research article: Dr Haibe-Kains’ research focuses on the computational integration of high dimensional molecular data to analyse multiple facets of carcinogenesis.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms have the potential to bring substantial advances in the fields of research exploring complex diseases and trying to identify effective treatments. Dr Benjamin Haibe-Kains, working at The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, has spent over a decade developing machine learning tools and databases that could help scientists gain a better understanding of […]
