Opportunities and Obstacles for Deep Learning in Biology and Medicine


Harkening back to the Nature article above this extensive paper examines applications of deep learning to a variety of biomedical problems such as patient classification, fundamental biological processes, and treatment of patients to predict whether deep learning will transform these tasks or if the biomedical sphere poses unique challenges.  The authors conclude that even though significant improvements on the prior state of the art have been made deep learning has yet to revolutionize or definitively resolve any of these problems.
