Cell by Cell: Deep Learning Powers Drug Discovery Effort for Hundreds of Rare Diseases

Cancer, diabetes, heart disease. These diseases attract a ton of research effort and funding, and for good reason: They afflict tens of millions of people each year. But there are about 7,000 known rare diseases that rarely get attention. Also called “orphan” diseases, these conditions collectively affect about 400 million worldwide and were historically neglected […]

Neural Ordinary Differential Equations

Neural ordinary differential equations Chen et al., NeurIPS’18 ‘Neural Ordinary Differential Equations’ won a best paper award at NeurIPS last month. It’s not an easy piece (at least not for me!), but in the spirit of ‘deliberate practice’ that doesn’t mean there isn’t something to be gained from trying to understand as much as possible. […]
