van der Schaar Lab

Microsoft Research AutoML speaker series

On October 6, Mihaela van der Schaar will be giving a presentation as part of the Microsoft Research AutoML speaker series.

Presentation title:
AutoML and interpretability: powering the machine learning revolution in healthcare

AutoML and interpretability are both fundamental to the successful uptake of machine learning by non-expert end users. The former will lower barriers to entry and unlock potent new capabilities that are out of reach when working with ad-hoc models, while the latter will ensure that outputs are transparent, trustworthy, and meaningful. In healthcare, AutoML and interpretability are already beginning to empower the clinical community by enabling the crafting of actionable analytics that can inform and improve decision-making by clinicians, administrators, researchers, policymakers, and beyond.

This keynote presents state-of-the-art AutoML and interpretability methods for healthcare developed in our lab and how they have been applied in various clinical settings (including cancer, cardiovascular disease, cystic fibrosis, and recently Covid-19), and then explains how these approaches form part of a broader vision for the future of machine learning in healthcare.

Series description:
This series brings together AutoML research communities from across the world to learn from each other and build on the latest knowledge and exploration. This virtual speaker series features talks by outstanding academics and domain experts whose research covers a broad swath of the topic..
