AI for Healthcare

12 December 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Speaker: Dr. Alison O’Neil

Refreshments and networking from 6:00 pm.

Artificial Intelligence (née Machine Learning) has transformational potential for the domain of healthcare. At Canon Medical Research Europe, we seek to translate advances in the state-of-the-art into useful and usable technology for the clinic. Medical data is particularly challenging since it may be large, noisy, biased, non-standard in format, and fragmented across multiple systems – whilst the underlying relationships may be complex and poorly understood. The difficulty of accessing and training on large amounts of data with suitable expert labels means that supervised deep learning algorithms are more difficult to train and test than in other domains. In this talk I will discuss some successes, some lessons learned and some solutions going forward, in the context of our research at Canon.
