Machine Learning has had profound impact on business and science in
recent years. Several convenient software systems have been developed
that can be applied with relatively small effort by experts in machine
learning. In particular, so-called deep learning strategies have shown
great progress in areas such as speech and image recognition. Here,
these methods clearly outperform earlier machine learning methods. For
decades machine learning has been used extensively in Bioinformatics.
However, deep learning strategies are much less used, but we believe a
wider community can start using these tools. The aims are to examine
the potential use of deep learning in a number of bioinformatics
applications described below.
