Accelerating translational cancer research through data science & AI

Despite the significant progress in the understanding, detection, and treatment of cancer, the global burden continues to grow, with one in 5 people developing cancer during their lifetime and one in 8 men and one in 11 women dying from the disease. Recent advances in biomedical technology and automation have enabled the generation of massive amounts of diverse data and are providing unprecedented opportunities for the acceleration of cancer research through big data and artificial intelligence methods. This talk will highlight various data science strategies applied to the management and analysis of large-scale cancer datasets with the goal of facilitating innovative data-driven research and developing novel efficacious therapies.
