Learn how to develop deep-learning models for tumor/cancer site classification
(e.g., Thyroid carcinoma, Lung adenocarcinoma)!

Overview: This two-part workshop will demonstrate how deep learning can be used to classify different types of cancer. Part I will focus on data preparation, starting with genomic data. Part II will demonstrate how to create a deep learning model, with hands-on instruction on how to use the processed data to build a convolutional neural network (CNN) model that can classify different cancer types. You can see preliminary workshop materials—Jupyter notebooks and documentation—on Github, at
