Deep learning for genomics and bio-medicine

ZGC Innovation Center @ Silicon Valley,4500 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, CA 95054 (map)

Please RSVP here.

Speaker: Professor James Zou, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Data Science, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Stanford University

Summary: Recent breakthroughs in high-throughput genomic and biomedical data are transforming biological sciences into “big data” disciplines. In parallel, progress in deep neural networks are revolutionizing fields such as image recognition, natural language processing and, more broadly, AI. In this talk I’ll explore some of the exciting intersection between these two advances. I’ll describe some recent developments in deep learning and discuss how we can adapt these approaches to biomedical data.

DESCRIPTION

Agenda:
2:00pm Gather in lobby
2:15pm Tour
3:45pm Social
4:00pm End

Go behind the scenes in the high-tech world of California’s famed Silicon Valley. See what it’s like inside an ultra-clean, highly automated silicon chip factory, and connect with technologies that give us new ways to work, learn, play, and communicate. The Intel Museum is 10,000 square feet of fun, interactive learning for children and adults.

The Intel Museum located at Intel headquarters in in Santa Clara, has exhibits of Intel’s products and history as well as semiconductor technology in general.

The museum was started in the early 1980s as an internal project at Intel to record its history. It has exhibits about how semiconductor chip technology works, both as self-paced exhibits and by reservation as grade-school educational programs. A fully functional 130x scale replica of the Intel 4004 CPU was built using discrete transistors and put on display in 2006.

Javascript based framework that can build cross platform mobile app

Hurricane Electric
48233 Warm Springs Blvd, Fremont, CA (map)
Fuse has developed a declarative and intuitive JS/Markup approach to native mobile app development. We’ve taken the quick, dynamic workflow that JavaScript provides, and coupled it with an advanced, native UI framework designed specifically for building beautiful mobile apps. All of this helps us to reduce iteration time between changes to an absolute minimum without sacrificing native performance, making app development faster, easier, and a heck of a lot more fun.

In this introductory workshop, we’ll give a quick overview of the technology and demo exciting possibilities Fuse opens for our users such as instant, on-device update of code and markup, and specialized user interface primitives designed tosuccinctly describe data presentation and animation in a way you only dreamed of with HTML5. All along the way, we’ll get live, hands-on experience working with these tools, on our devices, fully native, in real-time.

China Series: Pearl River Delta (PRD)

Greater China is a $11 trillion economy. Achieving the GDP growth target of 6% plus will remain the core objective of China’s fiscal and monetary policies. China is relaxing on IPO process (registration rathe than approval) and on permitting new entrants from tech sector and from abroad into financial services. China government would make higher priority in Green Initiatives. Pearl River Delta (PRD) is the most densely urbanized regions in the world and an economic hub of China, as well as the major manufacturing center of China and the world. According to the World Bank Group the PRD has becomes the largest urban area in the world in both size and population.Let’s hear from the active business executives from leadership team of Pearl River Delta Chapter (PRD) of Asia America MultiTechnology Association (AAMA). PRD AAMA board is actively advising and investing in early stage startup.

Pitch Your Story with a Powerful Voice

You have brilliant ideas and innovative products, yet when you speak and pitch your story you couldn’t even get and keep the attention from the investors. They not only have difficulty understanding your concept and your products, but couldn’t feel your passion for what you do. It’s not just what you say, but how you say it. To command attention, convey your passion and persuade people into action, you can not overlook this powerful tool, your voice.

In this session, you’ll learn practical tools to develop a voice that speaks clarity, confidence and conviction.

What will you learn?
