ITEM:1

TITLE: Dr. Russ Greiner, Professor, Computing Science, University of Alberta and Director, Alberta Ingenuity Centre for Machine Learning
SUBJECT: #240 Alberta Ingenuity Centre for Machine Learning
SYNOPSIS: When you touch a hot stove, you quickly learn that it burns and you shouldn’t do that again. Researchers at the Alberta Ingenuity Centre for Machine Learning are applying that very same principle to technology that enables computers to learn from experience. As Dr. Russ Greiner explains, that technology will allow us to use computers to make predictions. That capability has broad applications in industry, medicine, and other fields.

ITEM:2

TITLE: Dr. Duane Szafron, Professor, Computing Science and Dr. Paul Lu, Associate Professor, Computing Science, University of Alberta
SUBJECT: #240 Proteome Analyst
SYNOPSIS: Computer scientists Drs. Paul Lu and Duane Szafron are employing machine learning technology to reduce the amount of time biologists need in the lab to characterize newly discovered proteins. The result is a web-based program called Proteome Analyst.
