Artificial intelligence sheds new light on cell developmental dynamics

Artificial intelligence sheds new light on cell developmental dynamics

What happens inside a cell when it is activated, changing, or responding to variations in its environment? Researchers from the VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research have developed a map of how to best model these cellular dynamics. Their work not only highlights the outstanding challenges of tracking cells throughout their growth and lifetime, but also pioneers new ways of evaluating computational biology methods that aim to do this.

VIB research hits bioRxiv’s most downloaded top 10

VIB research hits bioRxiv’s most downloaded top 10

Every year, Rxivist compiles a list of the most downloaded bioRxiv preprints. The organization has recently put together the list for 2018. And at number 10, we find a paper from the Yvan Saeys group at the VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research. This is the first time VIB research makes it into the top 10 of this list.

Learning complex patterns with Gaussian processes (New FWO project)

Tom Dhaene (IDLab) - Deep learning models are a common tool to identify complex patterns in data. However, they still requires tens of thousands of training samples. In this project we investigate the use of Bayesian models such as the (deep) Gaussian process for deep learning and generative modeling modeling when data is scarce.

Generative design of linear passive electronic systems (New FWO project)

Tom Dhaene (IDLab) - Generative models are one of the most promising approaches to learn the world around us. In this project we investigate their potential for the design of linear passive electronic systems. Generative models, an unsupervised machine learning technique, are applied to learn the complete design space and to generate interesting valid designs.
