Special session on Big Data
Will talk about: Small brain and big data
Yike Guo is a Professor of Computing Science in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. He leads the Discovery Science Group in the department, as well as being the founding Directo of the Data Science Institute at Imperial College. Professor Guo also holds the position of CTO of the tranSMART Foundation, a global open source community using and developing data sharing and analytics technology for translational medicine.
Brain research is largely data driven. At Imperial Data Science Institute, we focus on applying modern statistics and machine learning methods for studying drain diseases prediction and monitoring. In this talks, I will cover few of our work in this area including applying deep learning methods for epilepsy prediction, and using a novel regularization method to automatically detect significant voxel activation for fMRI analysis. Also, I will present some of our new work in the area of neuroconnectivity research by applying big data analysis methods.
