Mihaela van der Schaar will deliver a keynote talk as part of the International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods (ICPRAM) hosted by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (ISTICC).
Machine Learning for Medicine and 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 time-series, causal inference, interpretable and explainable machine learning, as well as the development of new machine learning areas – quantitative epistemology.
This event will take place online on February 3 at 14:00 GMT.
The International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods is a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, both from theoretical and application perspectives. Contributions describing applications of Pattern Recognition techniques to real-world problems, interdisciplinary research, experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights that advance Pattern Recognition methods are especially encouraged.
