The van der Schaar Lab’s fourteenth Revolutionizing Healthcare engagement session for clinicians took place virtually on March 10, 2022.
This session was the second instalment in a double-header focusing on the absolutely crucial topic of early detection and diagnosis (ED&D).
At the start of the session, Mihaela and an international panel of three expert clinicians (representing a variety of backgrounds) explored how AI and machine learning can help transform early detection and diagnosis (ED&D).
Our panel for this session consisted of:
- Alberto Vargas, MD (Chief Attending, Department of Radiology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center)
- Prof. Henk van Weert (Professor, General Practice & Family Medicine, Amsterdam UMC; Research programs in oncology and cardiovascular diseases)
- Prof. Stephen Friend (Visiting Professor of Connected Medicine, University of Oxford; Chairman and co-founder, Sage Bionetworks and 4YouandMe)
Following the roundtable, Dr. Eoin McKinney (one of our lab’s clinical and academic collaborators) presented a newly-developed machine learning demonstrator specifically designed for ED&D.
