In this talk we will discuss: 1) Data-efficient methods for weakly-supervised whole slide classification with examples in cancer diagnosis and subtyping, allograft rejection etc. (Nature Biomedical Engineering, 2021). 2) Harnessing weakly-supervised, fast and data-efficient WSI classification for identifying origins for cancers of unknown primary (Nature, 2021). 3) Discovering integrative histology-genomic prognostic markers via interpretable multimodal deep learning (IEEE TMI, 2020). 4) Deploying weakly supervised models in low resource settings without slide scanners, network connections, computational resources and expensive microscopes. 5) Bias and fairness in computational pathology algorithms.

Speaker: Dr. Faisal Mahmood, Assitant Professor of Pathology, Harvard Medical School

In an article titled, "Slower decay of landfalling hurricanes in a warming world", published in Nature on November 11, 2020, Chakraborty and co-author Lin Li, describe results of their research that suggest that “as the world continues to warm, the destructive power of hurricanes will extend progressively farther inland.” 

Join the OIST Foundation to hear directly from Prof. Chakraborty about this important research on how hurricanes are changing in a warming world.

PRESENTER:  Dr. Pinaki Chakraborty, Professor, Fluid Mechanics Unit, OIST

Considered by some to be on the periphery of Japan, how might Okinawa be reimagined as a new center for innovation and research on the world’s most cutting-edge topics? How might a global scientific institution that operates in English with faculty and students from over 50 countries foster more inclusion and global connections in Okinawa and throughout Japan? These questions and more will be discussed as we examine the creation, mission, and vision of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST).

Speakers: Dr. Mary Collins (Provost, OIST), Dr. Tadashi Yamamoto (Dean of Research, OIST), Mr. David Janes (Sr. Advisor to the President for Institutional Development, OIST)
