Welcome to The Falafel Series Summer Special by AI@KI

Happy Summer!

The Falafel Series Summer Special – Interest Groups on AI 

The last seminar in the Falafel Series before summer is a celebration of the unbroken string of seminars through the cold winter. We will leave the speaker’s microphone to anyone attending who has an interest group to recommend. We will hear about NLP Friends, Women in AI, R Ladies, and many more initiatives.

While we still have to keep it digital, we will toast in summer with pointers and links to others that are like us.

Be there or be square!

 

AI@KI is a strategic project initiated by the President of KI with the goal to collect and describe all activities at KI related to artificial intelligence (AI). The assessment of which research at KI is AI-related and which AI methods are used, is made by project leader Magnus Boman, affiliated with KI/LIME.

The Falafel Series is a seminar series on methods in AI for health. The series runs late Friday afternoons as an After Work activity, approximately twice per month.

The purpose of the series is to inform people on what is ongoing or planned, and who does what with AI at Karolinska Institutet. The bulk of each hour spent in seminar is interactive discussion!

Book cover Apollo's Arrow by Nicholas A Christakis
Book cover of Apollo's Arrow by Nicholas A. Christakis

Apollo's Arrow offers a broad account of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic as it swept through American society in 2020 and of how the pandemic will unfold, and ultimately end, in the coming years.

Using up-to-the-moment information, and drawing on epidemiology, sociology, medicine, public health, history, virology, and other fields, it explores what it means to live in a time of plague — an experience that is paradoxically uncommon to the vast majority of humans who are alive, yet deeply fundamental to our species.

Unleashing new divisions in our society as well as new opportunities for cooperation, this 21st-century pandemic has upended our lives in ways that test our frayed collective culture.

Apollo's Arrow envisions what happens when the great force of a deadly germ meets the enduring reality of our evolved social nature.

SciLifeLab Svedberg Seminar: Klaas Mulder

Lead

Welcome to the Science for Life seminar series with Klaas Mulder, from the Radboud Institute of Molecular Life Sciences in the Netherlands. Title: Drug induced redirection of intracellular
information flow.

Content

"Drug induced redirection of intracellular information flow"

The Mulder lab investigates the mechanisms underlying human epidermal stem cell renewal & differentiation focusing on the epigenetic and non-coding RNA machineries. To study this, his lab developed new innovative technologies based on DNA-antibody conjugates e.g. ID-seq technology that allows us to quantify >80 (phospho-)proteins in hundreds of samples in a single experiment and RAID-seq that combines RNA and intracellular protein measurements from the same individual cell.

About the speaker

Klaas Mulder obtained his PhD from the University of Utrecht in 2006. After a post-doctoral period in the lab of Prof. Fiona Watt in Cambridge (UK) he arrived at the NCMLS in 2012 to head his independent research group.
