Topic:Innovative Machine Learning for Medical Data Analytics

Speaker:Shuo Li, Ph.D., University of Western Ontario

Date:July 10, at 15:00-16:00

Venue: E706, New Main Building


Medical data analysis is going through great changes with tremendous new opportunities showing up. The rise of machine learning and the rise of big data analytics, have brought wonderful opportunities to invent the new generation of machine learning tools for medical data analytics, not only to solve new problems appearing, but also to solve many years' challenges in conventional medical image analysis and computer vision with much more satisfactory solutions. This talk will share our experience in developing the next generation of image analytics tools with newly invented machine learning tools to help physicians, hospital administrative to analyze the huge growing medical data and help them to make the right decision and early decision at the right timing.
