Discovery of aggressive cancer cell types by Vanderbilt researchers made possible with machine learning techniques
Jun. 24, 2020—Rebecca Ihrie and Jonathan Irish are leading the development of machine learning applications for brain cancer research.
Jun. 17, 2020—The goal of the project—Risk-Aware Market Clearing—is a blueprint for an end-to-end, data-driven approach that balances cost and minimizes system-level risk. Market clearing is the process that keeps the supply level to the demand with no leftover of either.
May. 29, 2020—Jonathan Irish joins an international collaboration by deploying artificial intelligence to optimize COVID-19 treatment and vaccine development.
May. 14, 2020—Zhijun Yin, PhD, assistant professor of Biomedical Informatics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, has received the National Cancer Institute’s Method to Extend Research in Time Award (or MERIT Award) for Early Stage Investigators.
Vanderbilt engineers mine EMRs and clinical journals for novel disease associations and new research paths
Feb. 18, 2020—A new tool developed by Vanderbilt engineers, in collaboration with clinical and informatic experts, can unearth novel co-morbidities from routinely collected, anonymized electronic medical records.
Nov. 4, 2019—In machine learning, generative adversarial networks (GANs) involve two artificial neural networks squaring off, one, the generator, trying to delude the other, the discriminator, into accepting synthetic data as real. Beyond their science and engineering applications, GANs can generate utterly convincing “photographs” of people who do not exist. Unrestricted use on a wide scale of...
May. 8, 2018—Vanderbilt professor Brett Byram plans to use a grant from the National Science Foundation to utilize machine learning for the delivery of better real-time brain images, an advance decades in the making.
Apr. 19, 2018—Registration is now open for the Center for Quantitative Sciences Summer Institute. Take your quantitative research perspectives, methods and tools to the next level with four weeklong courses designed to offer hands-on learning in biostatistics and bioinformatics. Space is limited, so sign up today. The courses will be offered in August, before the beginning of...
