Details

John Reid (http://johnreid.github.io) will present on Bayesian active learning with Gaussian processes.

Optimising stem cell differentiation is an important control problem in biomedicine. We use Gaussian processes to model the unknown underlying differentiation dynamics. We find that our Bayesian active learning approach (a.k.a. optimal experimental design) performs remarkably well after very few iterations and that correct quantification of uncertainty is vital in this context.

Note: For the first time we will meet at the Biscuit Factory, Block L, in Bermondsey.
