Special Issue on Deep Neural Networks for Precision Medicine
Submission Date: 2020-02-01

Complex diseases are often classified into many subtypes that may require different treatment regiments. The precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability of patients. This approach assists medical doctors and technicians in accurate prediction of treatment, prevention and prognosis strategies that would work best for a particular disease, a specific patient or a group of patients. This is in contrast to more traditional approaches where the treatment and prevention strategies are developed for large and other heterogeneous populations of patients, with little attention to the differences between individuals. Recent advances in the high throughput biotechnologies resulted in the creation of massive omics datasets (e.g., genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics), medical imaging datasets, clinical datasets, electronic medical records, and others. These data coming from patients having the same disease are often heterogeneous and provide unparalleled levels of insightful information that can be used to develop accurate methods for precision medicine. Moreover, integration of these multi-modal data is seen as a feasible approach to improve accuracy of these methods. However, the development of accurate methods for precision medicine is very challenging, as it requires design of novel and sophisticated computational tools. Recently deep neural networks have been showing promise as the tools that offer several advantages in this context. They are capable to extracting useful end-to-end data and knowledge representations, benefitting from the availability of the very large datasets. The deep neural networks integrate multiple network layers (e.g., convolution layer, maximum pooling layer, etc.) and/or network blocks (residual block, dense block, etc.) to provide accurate predictive performance when trained from big and multi-modal data. They were applied to develop numerous tools for precision medicine that span multiple application areas including processing of omics data, image analysis, and text classification. This special issue calls for high quality, state-of-the-art research results related to the analysis and prediction of the precision medicine-related data that relies on deep neural networks. The specific topics include, but are not limited to: Deep neural networks for next-generation sequencing data analysis We encourage submission of articles that present novel methodologies as well as review/survey/vision papers on the above topics. The editors will actively seek to invite expert authors to submit the latter types of articles.

Special Issue on Deep Learning with Small Samples
Submission Date: 2020-04-15

In machine learning and computer vision fields, due to the rapid development of deep learning, recent years have witnessed breakthroughs for large-sample classification tasks. However, it remains a persistent challenge to learn a deep neural network with good generalizability from only a small number of training samples. In fact, humans can easily learn the concept of a class from a small amount of data rather than from millions of data. Moreover, many types of real-world data are small in quantity and are expensive to collect and label. Motivated by this fact, research on deep learning with small samples becomes more and more prevalent in the communities of machine learning and computer vision, for example, researches focusing on one-shot classification, few-shot classification, as well as classification with small training samples. Recently, deep small-sample learning has achieved promising performance in certain small-sample problems, by transferring the "Knowledge" learned from other datasets containing rich labelled data or generating synthetic samples to approximate the distribution of real data. However, many challenging topics remain with small-sample deep leaning techniques, such as data augmentation, feature learning, prior construction, meta-learning, fine tuning, etc. Therefore, the goal of this special issue is to collect and publish the latest developments in various aspects of deep learning with small samples. The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to: Survey/vision/review of deep learning with small samples Data augmentation methods for small-sample leaning Feature learning based methods small-sample leaning Regularization technology of deep model in small-sample leaning Ensemble learning based methods for small-sample learning Transfer learning methods for small-sample learning Semi-supervised learning methods for small-sample learning Prior based methods for few-shot learning Meta-leaning based methods for few-shot learning Fine-tuning based methods for small-sample learning Theoretical analysis for small-sample learning Applications of small-sample learning on person re-identification, object recognition, etc.
