How can deep learning impact healthcare?

By April Cashin-Garbutt, MA (Cantab) “Genomic medicine really needs deep learning,” these were the words of keynote speaker Brendan Frey, CEO Deep Genomics at RE-WORK’s Deep Learning in Healthcare Summit 2016. Brendan Frey, President & CEO, Deep Genomics Frey outlined the main issue blocking genomic medicine, the Genotype-Phenotype Gap, through a novel quotation from Eric Lander: Genome.Bought the book.Hard to read.” This quotation was taken from 2004, but the gap between the ability to collect genetic data and understand it’s meaning in a reliable, scalable and trustworthy way is one that we still haven’t managed to fill. Frey’s hope is to use deep learning to close the Genotype-phenotype Gap through superhuman artificial intelligence, for humans themselves have so far been unable to fully understand the genome.
