Inspiration Exchange: Synthetic Data

The van der Schaar Lab’s 24th Inspiration Exchange session took place on 1 February, 2023. The session covered Synthetic Data. This session was particularly engaging and interactive, with more than 140 participants joining the session live.

To start the session, Prof Mihaela van der Schaar gave an introductory presentation about synthetic data. This was followed by a presentation by Dr. Zhaozhi Qian about our group’s latest open-source package Synthcity, which features a variety of advanced synthetic data generators.

The core of the session was the roundtable discussion with our panel of experts from healthcare, pharmaceuticals, consulting, and finance industries, including Dimitrios Vlitas (Accenture), Elena Sizikova (FDA), Nick Brown (AstraZeneca), Peter Krusche (Novartis), Robert Tillman (Optum Labs), and Tucker Balch (JP Morgan), who shared their perspectives on Synthcity and synthetic data. The session was then opened up to the audience for Q&A and general discussion.

To learn more about Synthcity, please see our recorded video below, our Github Repo, and our paper. We are also holding a hybrid synthetic data tutorial at AAAI-23 on Feb 8, 2023 at 2-6 PM ESTregister here to learn more about Synthcity and synthetic data generation.
