ai.Lounge (Data Science / AI in Lifescience): April 26th – 5:00 p.m.

04/26/2022 // SCADS

On April 26th, a MeetUp on the application of AI and Data Science methods in the life sciences will take place at the ScaDS.AI location in Leipzig (Humboldstr. 25, 04107 Leipzig, 3rd floor). There will be three presentations from science and industry, which can then be discussed further in smaller groups and in a relaxed atmosphere.


17:30 Arrival
18:00 3 lectures
19:00 Exchange in small groups
19:30 Talks & drinks
21:00 Closing

Talks and speakers

Automatic processing of flow cytometry data

Georg Popp, Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI

Presentation of computer-based methods for automated analysis of flow cytometric measurements to improve speed, accuracy and reproducibility of analyses.

A prognostic RNA expression score for aggressive prostate carcinoma

Markus Kreuz, Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI

The clinical course of prostate cancer is heterogeneous. Precise prognostic biomarkers are needed to support optimal therapy selection. Using survival time and meta-analysis methods, prognostic genes were identified based on gene expression measurements in tumour tissue and combined into a prognostic signature using statistical learning methods.

Automated quality monitoring for more reliable integration of neural networks into medical workflows

Sebastian Niehaus, Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences)

The quality of neural network predictions is highly dependent on the quality and consistency of the input data. If there is too much discrepancy between the training data and the data on which the neural network is applied, the prediction quality decreases. In clinical applications, this often leads to problems, as each prediction has to be checked manually. We present an alternative approach for automatic quality monitoring.

Registration for the event is required.

The number of participants is limited to 30 and 3G rules apply (subject to the Saxon Corona Protection Ordinance in force at the time).

We are looking forward to a relaxed get-together!
