“Machine learning in pursuit of zoonotic prediction”
Preventing future disease outbreaks is a holy grail in global health, but the majority of new infections that are emerging in humans originate from wild species that are vastly understudied compared to humans. Machine learning approaches offer a lens through which available data across animal species can be leveraged to predict undiscovered disease reservoirs, and to suggest fruitful avenues for molecular and field validations to combine with data modeling approaches to improve preparedness.
UPCOMING SEMINAR DATES: October 18, November 8, and December 13
