Revolutionizing Healthcare: Second session on AutoPrognosis

On 21 November 2022, we had the second in our double-header on democratising diagnostic and prognostic modelling in healthcare using automated and interpretable machine learning. We dived back into AutoPrognosis 2.0, demonstrated its use, and discussed opportunities and questions surrounding the tool with a panel of clinical experts, as well as the audience.

The session started with a short demonstration by Dr Thomas Callender, MSc MRCP, followed by a short talk by Mihaela about AutoPrognosis in a cardiovascular setting. Prof Eoin McKinney, MD, rounded up the introduction by giving some additional comments from the clinical perspective on AutoPrognosis.

Finally, we had a round table discussion with experts from the field to discuss the tool.

Our guests were:

Dr Anthony Philippakis, MD, PhD (Chief data officer of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, founding director of the Data Sciences Platform, former cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the co-director of the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center)

Dr Sarah Blake, MRCP, PhD (Cardiology Registrar at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and AI Fellow at the AI Centre for Value-based Healthcare; Women in Cardiology Representative at the British Junior Cardiologists’ Association)

Afterwards, we invited questions from the audience and the session developed into an interesting discussion including the perspectives from a variety of clinicians.

If you would like to have a look at the tool, please find it on GitHub and see also at our dedicated website that is full of information surrounding AutoPrognosis 2.0. This website will grow over the coming weeks with more information, support, demonstrators, feedback, and will be the central point of our journey with this incredible tool.

If you didn’t manage to join us last week, we’d strongly recommend watching the archived video, which is now available on YouTube:
