About this event

Abstract: Bio-Health informatics bridges the gap between informatics methods and health & life sciences. Recent developments has enabled accumulation of overwhelming amount of bio-medical information, which needs to be analysed accurately and reliably. Although this has resulted in various successful applications it has also brought a number of challenges that we face. This talk will therefore try to cover developments and challenges with practical examples in various fields that we are working on within our research group. They include (i) multi-objective computational feature selection for disease-biomarker discovery, (ii) type-1 and type-2 fuzzy support vector regression for peptide binding prediction, (iii) Bayesian Inference Methods for cognitive behaviour identification based on computer games and (iv) identification of skin types, aging and diseases by means of low and high cost biomedical devices, bio-medical imaging and computational intelligence methods, and (v) various bio-webservers.
