Yahoo Labs released largest-ever annonymized machine learning data set for researchers

In January 2016, Yahoo announce the public release of the largest-ever machine learning data set to the international research community. The data set stands at a massive ~110B events (13.5TB uncompressed) of anonymized user-news item interaction data, collected by recording the user-news item interactions of about 20M users from February 2015 to May 2015. see: […]

Workshop “Machine Learning for Health Informatics” November, 30, 2015

Workshop Machine Learning for Health Informatics Machine learning is a large and rapidly developing subfield of computer science that evolved from artificial intelligence (AI) and is tightly connected with data mining and knowledge discovery. The ultimate goal of machine learning is to design and develop algorithms which can learn from data. Consequently, machine learning systems […]

December, 3, 2015 Seminar Talk on human protein interaction networks

Title: Coordination of post-translational modifications in human protein interaction network Lecturer: Ulrich Stelzl, Network Pharmacology, Insitute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Karl-Franzens University Graz Abstract: Comprehensive protein interaction networks are prerequisite for a better understanding of complex genotype to phenotype relationships. Post – translational modifications (PTMs) regulate protein activity, stability and protein interaction (PPI) profiles critical for […]

July, 7, 2015 Seminar Metabolomics data types

The potential of metabolomics and its various data types Lecturer: Natalie BORDAG,  CBmed – Center for Biomarker Research in Medicine Graz Abstract: Metabolomics is one of the youngest -omics technologies primarily concerned with the identification and quantification of small molecules (<1500 Da). The specific advantage of metabolomics in biomarker research lies in the concept, that […]
