Biomedical Engineering/UI3 Graduate Seminar

Artificial intelligence (or deep learning) is revolutionizing every industry by detecting patterns in data that humans are incapable of recognizing. Convolutional neural networks, in particular, are outperforming humans at a wide array of image recognition tasks while delivering real-time results. The trade-off for this improved performance is a lack of control or understanding of the patterns an algorithm uses to make a decision. This poses a major dilemma in medicine: how do we leverage advances in AI in a manner that ensures medically relevant information is used to make a final determination that is safe for patients? Dr. Amelon will discuss his own experience with deep learning algorithms - both its advantages and pitfalls - and how IDx's approach to artificial intelligence aligns with foundational medical knowledge.
