Abstract : The life of any organism depends on the ability of cells to accurately recognize and eliminate harmful microbes. In order to detect the immense repertoire of pathogenic entities, the innate immune system of mammals has evolved a range of distinct sensing strategies. One major mechanism is based on the recognition of microbial DNA ... Read more about "Innate DNA sensing through the cGAS-STING system - Blurring the boundary between PAMP and DAMP"

Knowledge Graphs (KGs) provide ways to organize, manage and retrieve structure information, playing an important role in a number of AI applications, such as recommender systems, question answering or natural language generation. However, a problem that is common to all KGs is their incompleteness. In this talk we briefly discuss different techniques to do knowledge ... Read more about "Learning with Knowledge Graphs"

This seminar will be live-streamed at the following link: In today’s increasingly globalised and complex economy that is flooded with data, taking decisions is a much more complex task. To help managers to tackle this challenge, we have developed a new multi-criteria performance management method that provides input for visual management and continuous improvement ...

In the last twenty years, the progressive introduction of plane or diverging ultrasonic wave transmissions rather than line by line scanning focused beams broke the resolution limits of ultrasound imaging. By using such large field of view transmissions, the frame rate reaches the theoretical limit of physics dictated by the ultrasound speed and an ultrasonic ...

Huntington's disease (HD), the most common dominantly inherited neurodegenerative disorder is characterized by a progressive striatal and cortical neurodegeneration associated with cognitive and behavioral disturbance. So far, many are the aberrant molecular mechanisms described to be associated with the disease, however much remains to be defined. In the last decade, perturbed metabolism of gangliosides, glycosphingolipids ... Read more about "BMI SEMINAR // Sphingolipid metabolism: new perspectives for treating Huntington's disease"

An incentive to use coarse-grained models is to use them for inference and control instead of the original (often intractable) model. Since coarse-grained models are always “wrong”, questions such as inference under model misspecification or goal-oriented uncertainty quantification (e.g. for control) come into play. This workshop will address such topics, with a special focus on ...
