Call For Papers

Workshop Overview
Data mining applications in biology and medicine rely on various machine intelligence methodologies for the analysis and interpretation of results. Examples of applications include detecting COVID-19 from chest X-ray images using deep learning, ranking safety of COVID-19 drugs of patients with cancer and chronic diseases using machine learning, identifying important genes in the underlying mechanism of COVID-19 and other neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease using tensor decomposition-based unsupervised feature extraction, finding drugs for infectious disease such as COVID-19 (and Ebola) using unsupervised learning, and identifying cell types of single-cell data using unsupervised learning. The success of such applications depends on the performance, which is attributed to the used machine intelligence methodology
