“Google’s deep-learning program for determining the 3D shapes of proteins stands to transform biology, say scientists.”

An optimism of this sort as to the potential of AI is shared by many working in the field of clinical and translational science. The purpose of this workshop is to explore the basis for this optimism, by looking at successes and failures of AI in different areas of biomedicine. Potential topics to be explored are:
  • Can NLP build useful medical ontologies?
  • Machine learning and the role of ontology
  • AI and team science
  • AI and medical diagnosis and clinical decision support
  • The limits of AI when applied to complex systems
  • Complex systems and the replication crisis
  • AI in therapeutic decision making
  • AI in modelling cell biology
  • AI in modelling systems biology
  • AI-driven cell ontology
  • The challenges of implementing AI in healthcare
 The tutorial will reflect on the questions of what will be the domain of medicine that will benefit most from AI and how will it impact the way we work in research and medical care?
