Machine learning for healthcare
Medicine stands apart from other areas where machine learning can be applied. While we have seen advances in other fields with lots of data, it is not the volume of data that makes medicine so hard, it is the challenges arising from extracting actionable information from the complexity of the data. It is these challenges that make medicine the most exciting area for anyone who is really interested in the frontiers of machine learning – giving us real-world problems where the solutions are ones that are societally important and which potentially impact on us all. Think Covid 19!
In this talk I will show how machine learning is transforming medicine and how medicine is driving new advances in machine learning, including new methodologies in automated machine learning, interpretable and explainable machine learning, dynamic forecasting, and causal inference.
This event will take place online on September 1 at 17:30 CEST (16:30 BST).
The 2021 ACM Europe Summer School on “HPC Computer Architectures for AI and Dedicated Applications” will take place 30 August – 3 September, and it is hosted by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). This edition of the school will be fully remote.
The summer school addresses young computer science researchers and engineers, and it is open to outstanding MSc students and senior undergraduate students. Accepted participants will attend formal lectures and invited talks.
