Gary B. Fogel public lecture at WCCI 2018
Abstract: At its core, the field of biomedicine focuses on an understanding of molecular processes, their possible physiological pathologies, and resulting medical treatment. This includes diagnostics that can classify individuals and their risk of disease based on molecular information. Or, for instance, determination of the appropriate treatment for individuals that are already afflicted with a disease. Given an overwhelming abundance of information at the molecular level, there exists a growing opportunity to use computational intelligence to improve our basic understanding of disease processes. In this public lecture I will provide examples of how these approaches can be used to help inform and lead to new medical opportunities. I will also review some of the hurdles that remain for the use of these tools in clinical settings.
