Modern artificial intelligence techniques, heavily based on machine learning approaches, have created the possibility to analyze large volumes of data in many domains, in ways that were inaccessible until now. Modern bioengineering depends heavily, if not totally, on data based approaches that are able to uncover the knowledge hidden in the large amounts of data generated by genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and other "omics". In this talk, I will describe some methodologies that can be used to extract knowledge from biological data and to direct bioengineering research.
