“Where did I put my keys?” or an overview on Multiple Instance of Learning


Multiple Instance Learning (MIL) is a form of weakly supervised learning based on the collective classification of sets of independent data samples. MIL methods were developed to deal with the cases where, in some tasks, labels don’t have a 1-to-1 relationship to each instance (sample) but to a whole bag of instances (set).

In this talk, the speaker will introduce the concept of MIL and how can its different methodologies be useful in your varied data science tasks. Usages of these approaches in health data will be explored through the work developed at iLoF.


Simão Faria is a Lead Data Scientist at iLoF facing the effort of leveraging Data Science knowledge to revolutionize health-related challenges. iLoF, with its innovative way of collecting optical signals from biological samples, aims to accelerate and support the development of personalized medicine. The speaker comes from a Biomedical Engineering background and has Data Science and Machine Learning experience both in research and industry. Some of his previous experience includes work in Computer Vision, Fintech and Image/Signal processing.



A special thanks to our Venue Porto Inovation Hub!!
