In recent years, Machine Learning as an advanced technology has been developed in varieties of scientific areas to assist with research and analysis, and made breakthrough progress. In the session 3, we are very excited to invite Cameron Chen, Staff Software Engineer and Tech Lead Manger from Google Health, to share with us their work and experiences on how to develop machine learning models for Healthcare.

Session 3: How to Develop Machine Learning Models for Healthcare

Advances in machine learning (ML) and the availability of digitized healthcare data have contributed to a growing number of studies in ML applications for healthcare. A common goal of these ML models is to improve patient care, both for clinicians and patients. In this talk, Cameron will discuss machine learning's translational process in healthcare: problem selection, data collection, ML model development, validation, assessment of impact, and deployment. In this framework, they will share the roadmap of the works in the space of ophthalmology and pathology. These works have demonstrated the potential of ML to improve the accuracy and availability of high-quality care drastically. Furthermore, some of the works started as pure research projects have transformed into systems for real patient care in several countries.
