My guest this week is Brendan Frey, Professor of Engineering and Medicine at the University of Toronto and Co-Founder and CEO of the startup Deep Genomics. Brendan and I met at the Re-Work Deep Learning Summit in San Francisco last month, where he delivered a great presentation called "Reprogramming the Human Genome: Why AI is Needed."
My interview with Brendan is focused on application of machine learning & AI to healthcare. In particular, we dig into how Brendan's research lab and company are applying machine learning and deep learning techniques to treating and preventing human genetic disorders. We dig into a fair amount of technical detail, both biological and ML/AI, and I learned a ton. I think you'll enjoy this one!
