The Artificial Intelligence Institute is pleased to invite you to a collaborative seminar on Thursday, 23 November @ 11 am, where Professor Emeritus Gregory Butler will share his cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence.

Deep learning has had a profound impact on the analysis of images and text. Beneficial AI co-pilots and harmful AI generation of fake news, speech, photos, and videos are of high interest for business, government, and the public.

There is great interest in AI for potential benefits to life sciences, biomedical research, and healthcare. Already a wide range of benefits can be seen. Here we will focus particularly on our research interests in protein sequence analysis and discuss mainly protein language models and transfer learning. Time permitting, we may briefly touch on advances in prediction of protein 3D structure, protein-substrate docking, and generative techniques of synthesis of novel proteins.

This event is free and open to all University staff and students.

Please refer to the calendar event for more information.
