Microsoft Talks Machine Learning, Biological ScienceBy: Chris Crum - April 2, 2013
David Heckerman from Microsoft research recently discussed some examples of how machine learning is affecting genomics and changing the pace of scientific breakthroughs.
“Until recently, the wet lab has been a crucial component of every biologist,” Microsoft Research says. “Today’s advances in the production of massive amounts of data and the creation of machine-learning algorithms for processing that data are changing the face of biological science—making it possible to do real science without a wet lab.”
Microsoft just released the video Heckerman’s talk. It’s just over a half hour long:
