- Deep Learning Algorithms have the potential to unlock mechanisms of tissue regeneration for applications in age-related disease -
The venue of Mensa 2016 was chosen in order to discuss the ongoing paradigm shift relating to the use of artificially-intelligent systems to surpass human performance in areas including image recognition, autonomous driving, and biomedical research. Dr. West's presentation along with a video describing AI-based discovery and iTR will be available on
Mensa, the high IQ society, provides a forum for intellectual exchange among its members in over 100 countries around the world.
Induced Tissue Regeneration
Humans and most mammals have only a limited capacity to repair tissues in the body resulting from trauma or degenerative disease. However, some animals, such as the Mexican salamander can profoundly regenerate injured tissues, even amputated limbs. Using pluripotent stem cells and its proprietary PureStem® technology,
The transition from the ability to regenerate tissue in early embryonic development to the ability to merely produce scar tissue as adults is one of the most complex processes studied in biology today.
In addition to the development of therapeutics, BioTime's research and other activities have resulted, over time, in the creation of other subsidiaries that address other non-therapeutic market opportunities such as cancer diagnostics, drug development and cell research products, and mobile health software applications.
