We collaborate with Marc Feldman from Stanford University on the problem of the role of sexual recombination in evolution and with Karl Skorecki, Dean of Medicine of Bar-Ilan University and director of the Molecular Medicine lab at the Technion and Rambam.
The mixability theory for the role of sex in evolution served a motivational role in the development of a key advance that contributed to enabling the breakthrough of deep learning in 2012 and the ensuing artificial intelligence revolution.
