A researcher from the University of Waterloo lead the development of a new software tool. This software tool can provide answers to some of life’s biggest questions!
Named ML-DSP, the tool is a combination of machine learning and digital signal processing. The ML-DSP can answer questions like ‘how many different species exist on the Earth and oceans.’ As well as, ‘how are existing, newly-discovered, and extinct species related to each other?’
The ML-DSP tool has the potential to identify the specific strain of a virus tested. This potential could lead to the creation of more precise drugs developed and prescribed to treat it. That is because the ML-DSP transforms a DNA sequence into a numerical digital signal.
“Even if we only have small fragments of DNA we can still classify DNA sequences, regardless of their origin, or whether they are natural, synthetic, or computer-generated,” said Lila Kari, a professor of Mathematics at Waterlo.
Comparing the ML-DSP to other similar software tools, the ML-DSP overwhelmingly outperformed the other tools. In conclusion, The ML-DSP is better in terms of processing time and classification accuracy, so it should be adopted more. In conclusion, this innovation is going to help a lot of people in the near future.
