01 April 2021


Robertson Room St Peter’s Church 11 Killarney Street, Takapuna

Irene Leathwick was GWNZ 2020-21 Scholarship Awardee
Recent developments and the sheer quantity of available data in computational power have resulted in an explosion of interest and application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to genomics problems.
AI methods are now able to discover complex patterns which humans are unable to find or envisage.
In this talk Irene will provide an introduction to artificial intelligence (particularly to the branch of AI known as deep learning), its suitability and applicability to biological problems, and the findings of her research.

If you would like to attend the meeting as a guest, with or without a view to joining us, you would be most welcome – please introduce yourself when you arrive.

We also welcome visitors from other branches of Graduate Women who may be in Auckland at the time of our meeting.
