Revolutionizing Healthcare

Revolutionizing Healthcare is a series of engagement sessions aiming to share ideas and discuss topics that will define the future of machine learning in healthcare. These events will target the healthcare community and focus on challenges and opportunities in clinical application of machine learning.

As a lab, our purpose is to create new and powerful machine learning techniques and methods that can revolutionize healthcare. This doesn’t happen in a vacuum. At inception, we are inspired by ideas and discussions; in implementation, we need connections, trust, and partnership to make a real difference.

While you can learn about our work at major conferences in machine learning or in our papers, we think it’s a better idea to create a community and keep these conversations going. We’re also aware that many people—both in healthcare and machine learning—have questions about what we do, and how they can contribute.

Revolutionizing Healthcare

Themed discussion sessions specifically for healthcare professionals (primarily clinicians and healthcare workers).

We would like to:
– introduce machine learning concepts as they relate to healthcare
– spark new projects and collaborations
– demonstrate the real-world impact of machine learning in clinical settings
– discuss institutional barriers preventing wider adoption
– develop a shared vision for the future of machine learning in healthcare.

Standard session format:
– topic-specifc panel discussion featuring clinicians
– discussion between van der Schaar Lab researchers
– open Q&A

Revolutionizing Healthcare session 1 (September 29)

Our first session was on September 29 at 16:00 BST, and ran for roughly 1 hour.

Ahead of this session, Mihaela published a piece of content on machine learning and the future of healthcare, entitled Revolutionizing healthcare: an invitation to clinical professionals everywhere.

Next session on November 11!

Our first session will be on November 11 at 16:00 GMT, and will run for roughly 1 hour.
