On pseudo-absence generation and machine learning for locust breeding ground prediction in Africa

1 code implementation6 Nov 2021 Ibrahim Salihu Yusuf, Kale-ab Tessera, Thomas Tumiel, Zohra Slim, Amine Kerkeni, Sella Nevo, Arnu Pretorius

In this paper, we compare this random sampling approach to more advanced pseudo-absence generation methods, such as environmental profiling and optimal background extent limitation, specifically for predicting desert locust breeding grounds in Africa.


Designing a Prospective COVID-19 Therapeutic with Reinforcement Learning

no code implementations3 Dec 2020 Marcin J. Skwark, Nicolás López Carranza, Thomas Pierrot, Joe Phillips, Slim Said, Alexandre Laterre, Amine Kerkeni, Uğur Şahin, Karim Beguir

This suggests that combining leading protein design methods with modern deep reinforcement learning is a viable path for discovering a Covid-19 cure and may accelerate design of peptide-based therapeutics for other diseases.
