Today we're joined by Artur Yakimovich, Co-Founder at Artificial Intelligence for Life Sciences and a visiting scientist in the Lab for Molecular Cell Biology at University College London.
In our conversation with Artur, we explore the gulf that exists between life science researchers and the tools and applications used by computer scientists. While Artur's background is in viral chemistry, he has since transitioned to a career in computational biology to "see where chemistry stopped, and biology started." We discuss his work in that middle ground, looking at quite a few of his recent work applying deep learning and advanced neural networks like capsule networks to his research problems.
Finally, we discuss his efforts building the Artificial Intelligence for Life Sciences community, a non-profit organization he founded to bring scientists from different fields together to share ideas and solve interdisciplinary problems.
