Speaker information

Professor Samuel Kaski, Academy of Finland

A challenge facing digital health research and other data-driven research is how to make maximal use of growing databases of experimental datasets to keep research cumulative. This involves integrating multiple data modalities, such as multiple types of cellular data and phenotypes, and combining data from multiple experiments.

Professor Samuel Kaski will discuss modelling-based methods for both tasks. For retrieving data sets relevant to a query dataset, the methods are usable in particular for relating an empirical researcher’s experimental dataset to earlier work in the field. The search is (i) data-driven to enable new findings, going beyond keyword searches in annotations, and (ii) modeling-driven, to take into accound both prior knowledge and insights learned from data. He will discuss case studies on gene expression data sets, and combining human-computer interaction insights and machine learning for interactive searches.
