This is my attempt to better explain the intersection of math, bio, and computer science. Most strict examples used for understanding in the article are in Pavel Pevzner and Phillip Compeau’s books, but formatted and expanded upon by me.

The intersection of mathematics and biology is really something beautiful to…


Here’s what we need to do to change that

Humans are fragile. That’s not to say that we’re meat sacks waiting to decay and die, but we’re only able to survive the pathogenic conditions of 21st century society thanks to modern day medicine.

We’ve come a long way from using charms and bloodletting to help cure countless diseases, but…


Computer vision has transformed the way we look at the world’s most challenging problems (see what I did there, look).

Despite having new algorithms and model architectures come up and change the playing field, we still have a long way to go in terms accessibility, efficiency, and accuracy of these…


Learn about how you can design specific application-based neural networks in practice.

Deep learning is difficult, to say the least. The plurality of structures and methods for creating neural network architectures are almost exclusive to very selective problems. In most cases, the boilerplate models just won’t cut it, so how do you go about designing the best neural network?

The reality is…


This summer, I had the chance to work on the clinical trials space through BenchSci. …


In a time where we are so interconnected, it is baffling that we can be just as alone. I remember feeling alone, and I’m sure we all have at some point in our lives. Everyone in the world has felt incompetent, damaged, or misguided.

But in that we also have…


I’ve always looked at Disney as this magical company with a life-like personality. It’s crazy to think that there is a corporation out there that fundamentally changed the way we kids thought about the world and the people we looked up to. …


Feature Maps of Image1 from dataset that was used in Pt. 1 Using VGG16 Model

We’re back with CNNs and developing accurate classification models. I recommend you read the last part (and clap it up too) so that you’re familiar with the content, the approach, and dataset that we’re using.

To give you a refresher, we designed a CNN to diagnose Diabetic Retinopathy from a…


We all wish to be different or unique in our lives, hoping to be seen for our strengths from the rest. However, some of us are born not with rare gifts, but unfortunately with rare diseases. More than 350 million people across the world are living with 1 of the…
