We all are products of our genes. Our DNA contains many secrets that have a huge impact on our health. Understanding them is key on our way to fighting diseases like Alzheimer's disease, Diabetes or Multiple Sclerosis. But finding relevant patterns in the complex double helix with more than 2,85 billion base pairs is extremely difficult. Even with recent developments in artificial intelligence, it seems almost impossible to make progress in this field because classic algorithms need huge amounts of subjects with fewer features (big data) but in genetics, it is the other way around. There are fewer subjects but with millions of unique features each (wide data). An impossible task?
Ask biotx.ai at our StartUp-Event. Combining their expertise in data science and biochemistry the young enterprise from Potsdam develops an artificial intelligence specifically designed to make wide data manageable and discover previously undetectable complex genetic patterns that can be used as predictive markers, for clinical trials, and drug development.
After the presentation, we will discuss the topic within our interdisciplinary health hacker community (physicians, caregivers, engineers, programmers, students, and hackers).
This event is part of the lecture “New technologies and methods for the future of healthcare”.
