BigHat’s CSO, Peyton Greenside, joined Professor Ron Dror at the Stanford Computer Science AI Salon to discuss the future of machine learning and computational biology. The AI Salon provides a forum to think beyond day-to-day research and think about how AI research fits into the "long-term trajectory of scientific progress."
Beyond her opening remarks about ML and biology, Dr. Greenside highlighted:
- The problem areas most ripe for impact in biology from an AI perspective
- The data requirements for machine learning in biology and why they are often much more burdensome and difficult to collect than other fields
- The differences between the work "big tech" is doing in biology and the needs of biopharma/biotech
