Inspiration Exchange: Revolutionizing Clinical Trials with Machine Learning

The van der Schaar Lab’s 25th Inspiration Exchange session took place on 21 March, 2023. The session covered Revolutionizing Clinical Trials with Machine Learning.

To start the session, Alihan Hüyük gave an introductory presentation about clinical trials and how machine learning can help to decide when to make and break commitments to a trialling process.

Core of the session was the roundtable discussion with our panel of experts from, including Dr Carl-Fredrik Burman (AstraZeneca), Dr Miro Dudík (Microsoft Research), Dr Sean Hayes (Merck & Co.) and Prof Suetonia Palmer (University of Otago) sharing their insights on the applications and developments of machine learning for clinical trials.

The session was then opened up to the audience for Q&A and general discussion. To conclude the session, Zhaozhi Qian gave a quick update on the development of Synthcity.
