08.00-16.15 Registration Open

09.00-10.30 Keynote CD-MAKE “Bring Mathematics into Biology: past, present and future impact on Heath”
Marta Milo, University of Sheffield, UK

Abstract: Last decade has seen a massive increase of data production in science. Particularly in the biomedical field, data has grown exponentially thanks to the development of technologies like next generation sequencing and high-throughput quantitative assays. The information that this data contains is only partially uncovered to this date, but the impact that it has on human progression and well being is already very clear.
Despite the ability to process large amount of data and to quantify fine details of biological processes, the costs, the time to perform such experiments and mainly the complexity of the systems remain in some cases still very prohibitive. For this reasons the use of mathematics to study complex systems in its entirety, looking at how they interacts, is having a great impact in current biology and healthcare. A variety of statistical, probabilistic and optimization techniques methods, like machine learning techniques, that allows to “learn” from the available data, to detect hidden patterns from large, noisy and complex datasets, is particularly suitable for application in medicine.

In this talk I will present examples of using machine learning techniques for a variety datasets from medical and biological problems and what are the advantages and disadvantages of this approach. I will also give examples when these techniques enabled to discover informative knowledge from a large complex system in the presence of small number of samples. Finally I will discuss how we use Machine Learning today for analysis of single-cell sequencing data and how we can use it for future more complex datasets generated integrating data from different sources.

13:50-14:30 Keynote CD-MAKE “Cloaking Functions: Differential Privacy with Gaussian Processes”
Neil D. Lawrence, University of Sheffield and Amazon, UK

Abstract: Processing of personally sensitive information should respect an individual’s privacy. One promising framework is Differential Privacy (DP). In this talk I’ll present work led by Michael Smith at the University of Sheffield on the use of cloaking functions to make Gaussian process (GP) predictions differentially private. Gaussian process models are flexible models with particular advantages in handling missing and noisy data. Our hope is that advances in DP for GPs will make it easier to ‘learn without looking’, i.e. gain the advantages of prediction from patient data without impinging on their privacy.

Neil Lawrence is a Professor of Machine Learning and Computational Biology at the University of Sheffield. He holds a PhD in Computer science from Cambridge University and had a postdoctoral stay with Microsoft Research Cambridge. He has served as the Chair of the NIPS Conference, the premier Machine Learning conference in the world, and was the founding editor of the Journal of Machine Learning (JMLR) Research Workshop and Conference Proceedings. He is a fellow of the Royal Society in the working group for machine learning.
