View full programme

Robrecht Dewaele - CTO, XAOP

Short description of the workshop:

Join XAOP in our first interactive Satellite Workshop and learn about the benefits of using Machine Learning, High Performance Computing and Amazon Web Services in the field of Life Sciences.

High Performance Computing (HPC) is becoming a more popular term by the day - but what does it mean, exactly? And how could Machine Learning contribute to the field of Life Sciences? XAOP aims to address these questions together with our Satellite Workshop participants in an introductory AWS training demo.

Participants will be able to explore the possibilities offered by Amazon Web Services, guided by our CTO and scientific analyst each step of the way. Using a simulated series of scientific events, XAOP will demonstrate not only the powerful opportunities AWS can offer in the field of Life Sciences, but also how much further we can go combining these services with Machine Learning and HPC.
