In this seminar I will briefly review some success stories of Machine Learning applied to bio-medical domain up to date and speculate on what it will take to enable a much more substantial progress. I will specifically discuss Biology of Aging - the field which remains most promising and most fraudulent over the thousands of years in history of medical sciences. I will present my own work and suggest where theoretical approaches and modeling can make a big difference in a search for anti-aging and rejuvenating interventions.
