van der Schaar Lab

IEEE ICIP 2021 plenary


Mihaela van der Schaar will deliver a plenary talk at the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP 2021).


From image processing to machine learning in 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 as well as image processing, including new methodologies in automated machine learning, interpretable and explainable machine learning, dynamic forecasting, and causal inference.

Location and local date/time

This event will take place online on September 20 at 10:00 AKDT (19:00 BST).

About the event

The IEEE ICIP is the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conference focused on image and video processing and computer vision. This conference will showcase world-class plenary speakers, tutorials, exhibits, special sessions, industry sessions, and women in engineering that creates an excellent forum to foster innovation and entrepreneurship. There will be opportunities to network with the brightest minds in academia and industry from this field. In addition, several events targeting students and professionals will also be featured at IEEE ICIP 2021.
