10jan2:30 pm3:30 pmGenomics, Imaging, and AI: Three Technologies That Are Changing Biological Research Through to Clinical Practice


Event Details

Over the last two decades three major technologies have developed as the bed rock of how we understand living systems; genomics, including nucleic acid based molecular biology readouts, imaging from near-atomic resolution to whole organism structures and machine learning including the very large non-linear architectures of artificial intelligence (AI). Dr. Ewan Birney will provide a brief tour of this technology development, using examples from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and touching on both fundamental biological discoveries through to clinical applications. He will end by providing a perspective for the future of this triad with their impressive opportunities, the landscape of data and skills needed to actualize them and some potential pitfalls to avoid.
