Welcome to the Houston Pipeline Pilot User Forum.
This forum will begin at 9:30 am on Tuesday, October 25th at the conveniently located Hyatt Regency North Houston. Join us and hear from BIOVIA Pipeline Pilot experts and current customers that will highlight core capabilities, advanced topics, tips and tricks, and customer case studies all designed to help you become more proficient with Pipeline Pilot. Check out the agenda below.
|9:00 AM||Door Opens|
Welcome & Introductions
Matt Hahn, BIOVIA
Matt Hahn, Co-Founder of SciTegic, the company that brought you Pipeline Pilot, discusses BIOVIA’s plans for the future of Pipeline Pilot including updates for ScienceCloud, the Next Generation Web-Client and more.
Pipeline Pilot, a Unifying and
Enabling Platform for ETL and Knowledge Flow
Michael Doyle, BIOVIA
Chemistry Collection Updates
Matt Sage, BIOVIA
Several enhancements have been made for the Pipeline Pilot Chemistry Collection in release versions 2016 and 2017, including updates for Homology groups and higher-order stereochemistry, HELM (XHELM support, and more.
What's New in Biology/Imaging
Tim Moran, BIOVIA
This talk will new features and capabilities in the Biology and Imaging Collections which include support of multi-national sequencing efforts and Life Science Imaging applications in machine learning.
Document Search & Analysis
Jannise Buckley, BIOVIA
Use Pipeline Pilot for all of your content, search and analysis needs with updates featuring improved ChemMining capabilities, Text Analytics, Document Search and the Thomson Reuters Cortellis Collection
What’s New in Statistics and Modeling (Big Data)
Dana Honeycutt, BIOVIA - Principal Scientist, Statistics and Data Modeling
We’ll discuss Hadoop I/O integration and enhanced scalability of native Pipeline Pilot models, including in-memory model support. We'll also cover variable (feature) importance for predictive models. We'll briefly cover tips for data preparation and cleaning.
Using Machine Vision and Learning to Identify Phenotypic Markers of Overall Survival in Lower Grade Gliomas.
Reid Powell, Grad Student, Texas A&M Institute Of Bioscience And Technology
We developed an approach to quantify the local orientation of nuclei in whole slide histological sections obtained from the cancer genome atlas (TCGA) using components in the Pipeline Pilot advanced imaging collection. This method converts visual content of the tissue into a statistical representation of machine learned phenotypes. These data are then used to identify phenotypes associated with OS using linear regression. Additionally, we constructed a support vector machine model which integrates visual features and predicts survival classes. Finally, we used correlative statistics between molecular information on TCGA and visual features to gain insight into the potential molecule etiology of the OS-associated phenotypes.
Tips & Tricks
Fred Coughlin, BIOVIA
This session will cover tips and tricks for users on the newest version of Pipeline Pilot. Working with customers, we've built up a vast knowledge of problems that users have encountered and how to address those problems.
Protocol Building Competition with Matt Hahn
Matt Hahn, BIOVIA
We bring back an old Pipeline Pilot User Group tradition where Matt Hahn goes head to head with attendees in a protocol building competition to see who’s the Pipeline Pilot master
