Artificial Intelligence in Pathology

2021年6月4日 (金) 8:00 9:00
Zoom link will be provided upon registration

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
