Next session broadcast: Lessons learnt from applying Machine Learning in 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, I 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, I will share the roadmap of our 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.

Time: 7:00 pm PT, March 20 / 10:00 pm ET, March 20
