His current research is focused on applying machine learning and data mining methods to biological data. For the PhD thesis, Dmytro is building an automatic tool for analyzing protein microarray experiments in immunological studies. With colleagues, he is using Deep Learning on various biological data, including genomic data and microscopy images. Also, he has experience teaching different machine learning related subjects both at the University of Tartu and as an invited lecturer in companies. A certified trainer in Data Carpentry and Software Carpentry organizations that organize and carry out training for scientists in the core data science skills around the world.
How a data scientist can help to advance healthcare
Here is a link to the presentation.
This talk started with the speaker’s personal story of how he ended up doing projects related to healthcare, medicine and biology. He described some relevant projects that he is a part of along with data science methods that he uses. Next, we were looking into ways how one of the most famous AI methods – deep learning, can be used in medicine and biology. We discussed its achievements, failures and perspectives in this field. At last, we were discussing one of the successful applications of deep learning in biology that I am working on – detecting nuclei from microscopy images.
