van der Schaar Lab

Chalmers AI Talk

Mihaela van der Schaar will be taking part in the Chalmers AI Talks series, hosted by the Chalmers University of Technology, on February 17.

Keynote title:
Why medicine is creating exciting new frontiers for machine learning

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, and causal inference.
