CFG Seminar: Reading Discussion led by Mengfei Lan

For this semester, the CFG seminar series will take the form of discussing research in parallel to the CIRSS speaker series, with the theme of "Knowledge Graphs and Semantic Computing." We will be discussing (but not limited to) the works and studies of the CIRSS speaker prior to the talk on Friday each week, with a voluntary student/faculty leading each session.

On March 1, iSchool doctoral student Mengfei Lan will lead a reading discussion about works from Dr. Robert Hoehndorf with the topic of "Machine learning with biomedical ontologies".
