The Center for Computational Engineering and Networking (CEN), Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, iorganized a three-day workshop on DeepChem 2017 - Deep Learning & NLP for Computational Chemistry, Biology & Nano-materials, from December 22-24, 2017.

About DeepChem 2017

The AIBio (Artificial Intelligence for Biology) group in the Computational Engineering and Networking (CEN) department at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham organized the workshop. The workshop covered topics such as Deep learning and Natural language processing (NLP) towards the applications in the field of Computational Chemistry, Biology & Nano-materials. The main aim of this workshop was to share the ideas of on-going research and exploratory topics, leading to possible collaborations between CEN faculty, Ph.D. research scholars, and students.

The aim of this workshop was to bring together researchers and practitioners working in deep learning, Computational chemistry, Biology & Nano-materials, from academia and industry. The primary target audience of the workshop is Mtech students, research scholars, and faculty. The workshop also had an interactive session, with a free exchange of ideas, views, and comments.
