_Box, Hall 1.2
Big Data approaches, and in particular techniques from artificial intelligence, such as deep learning, have spurred dramatic innovation in many fields, including biomedicine. Yet, such approaches frequently focus on prediction, while a comprehensive systems medicine approach requires modeling and understanding of underlying biological mechanisms. To provide a perspective on what a unified approach could look like, the board of the subject area "Medical Bioinformatics and Systems Biology" of the GMDS has organized this workshop, highlighting exemplary applications and providing a discussion forum.
This session is organised and held by the German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS) e. V.
