AI and Complex Systems in Biomedicine
Eighth Clinical and Translational Science Award Ontology Workshop
The Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Group (CTSOG) invites you to join us March 16-18, 2022 in Orlando, Florida to discuss AI, Complex Systems in Biomedicine, and the role of ontology both in tempering the expectations of AI and advancing it to goals it can achieve. For example, we hear things all the time like “Google’s deep-learning program for determining the 3D shapes of proteins stands to transform biology, say scientists.” An optimism of this sort as to the potential of AI is shared by many working in the field of clinical and translational science. The purpose of this workshop is to explore the basis for this optimism, by looking at successes and failures of AI in different areas of biomedicine.
Example topics include:
- Can NLP build useful medical ontologies?
- Machine learning and the role of ontology
- AI and team science
- AI and medical diagnosis and clinical decision support
- The limits of AI when applied to complex systems
- Complex systems and the replication crisis
- AI in therapeutic decision making
- AI in modelling cell biology
- AI in modelling systems biology
- AI-driven cell ontology
- The challenges of implementing AI in healthcare

- Abstract: “Google’s deep-learning program for determining the 3D shapes of proteins stands to transform biology, say scientists.” An optimism of this sort as to the potential of AI is shared by many working in the field of clinical and translational science. The purpose of this tutorial is to explore the basis for this optimism, by looking at successes and failures of AI in different areas of biomedicine.
Potential topics to be explored are:
- - Can NLP build useful medical ontologies?
- - Machine learning and the role of ontology
- - AI and team science
- - AI and medical diagnosis and clinical decision support
- - The limits of AI when applied to complex systems
- - Complex systems and the replication crisis
- - AI in therapeutic decision making
- - AI in modelling cell biology
- - AI in modelling systems biology
- - AI-driven cell ontology
- - The challenges of implementing AI in healthcare
The tutorial will focus on the question of what domains of medicine will benefit most from AI and how AI will impact the way we work in research and medical care.
Jobst Landgrebe is the founder and managing director of Cognotekt, an AI company based in Cologne, Germany, focusing on the creation of structured data from natural language text. Dr Landgrebe is an MD with a background in biomedical informatics. He is the co-author, with Barry Smith, of Why Machines Will Never Rule the World. Artificial Intelligence without Fear, to be published by Routledge in summer 2022.
