MACHINE LEARNING & AI FOR HEALTHCARE: A HIMSS EVENT

Boston, MA
Westin Copley Place

Learning to Cure Cancer

June 13, 2019
4:20pm - 4:55pm
Grand Ballroom

Healthcare is still in a primitive stage of using data science and machine learning to detect and treat cancer. In this session, MIT Professor Regina Barzilay explains how the school’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory is training deep learning models to outperform human oncologists.

Cancer affects millions of people, and Professor Barzilay sees machine learning playing a transformative role in improving access to care, reducing costs, and decreasing mortality. She’ll give attendees a fascinating and inspiring look how she and her team, collaborating with Massachusetts General Hospital, are developing algorithms and using NLP to improve models for disease progression, prevent overtreatment, and personalize the cure.
