Concurrent Session 1C: Applications in Machine Learning and AI In Medical Imaging; Attendance CEU 1.5 only

Wednesday, September 12
10:15 AM - 11:45 AM
Location: Mayo Civic Center Rooms 110-111

Machine learning is finding widespread applications in medicine due to the convergence of the availability of data via electronic medical records, the interest in individualizing medicine, and new approaches to algorithm development, most notably deep learning. Machine learning is being applied to clinical trial choices, radiographic and pathology image analysis, electrocardiogram interpretation, responses to drug therapy, prediction of development of type 2 diabetes and many others. A review of machine learning approaches and concrete medical examples will be provided.
