Machine Learning Seminar

CHDS visitor and Williams College student David Krane spoke at the CHDS lunchtime seminar series on “Using Simulation to Improve Machine Learning of Complex Systems”.

Predicting the way in which a given cancer treatment will affect a tumor can be seen as a machine learning problem, Krane discussed. This prediction is a unique challenge because of complexities of biological systems, the number of potentially relevant genomic and clinical features, and the absence of large-scale patient data repositories. In the seminar, Krane presented a novel method to integrate simulations — a strong form of prior knowledge — into machine learning.
