There are 14 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million cancer-related deaths worldwide per year.Innovation in the fight against cancer requires a multi-faceted approach. As patients and as stakeholders, healthcare ecosystem experts in genomics, proteomics, imaging, medicine and data sciences are cooperating in new ways. GPU computing, integrated data and novel algorithms enable the use of deep learning and artificial intelligence to transform cancer research and care. Dr. Jerry S.H. Lee, Whitehouse Cancer Moonshot Deputy Director for Research and Technology, will facilitate a thought provoking panel discussion on leveraging Artificial Intelligence to fight cancer.
Major advances in computer science are beginning to have an impact on radiology. The rapid achievements in performance for object detection in natural images have enabled these impacts. There has been an explosion of research interest and number of publications regarding the use of deep learning in radiology. In this presentation, we'll show examples of how deep learning has led to major performance improvements in radiology image analysis, including image segmentation and computer aided diagnosis.
