Biophotonics is the study of microscopic life, like biological cells, using optical methods. It has applications in medicine, agriculture and environmental sciences. In this session we will see how Deep Learning and Big Data software and can help analyze images captured using tools like high end microscopes, used in biophotonics. Thus accelerating medical research. Medical research labs and diagnostic centers use high end microscopes and deep human knowledge to observe living cells and perform life cycle analysis on them. These workflows involve time consuming, iterative and complex processes. This session will explain the application of deep learning to automatically detect microscopic cells from samples of digital images, and provide automatic classification. This will be of immense help for medical diagnostics. The solution uses PredictionIO, Spark, OpenCV and Deeplearning4j
