Rod Greco (with a demo 'assist' from Miguel Pedroso) of Aquila (https://www.aquila.ai) will be presenting on how they use ML to create powerful tools to help radiologists analyze medical images--such as to identify pathologies in lung X-rays, to take one example. A rough outline of the talk is as follows:
- Evolution of Radiology (from film to AI)
- CAD vs ML
- Aquila Overview
- ML Demo
This definitely a must-attend for folks in the medical imaging field! Some further background about the company and principals:
Aquila is an AI startup, based in Raleigh and Portugal, developing Deep Learning algorithms to allow radiologists do what they do best: finding answers/diagnoses. Our value proposition is to provide a second pair of eyes for imaging centers and hospitals, allowing them to perform double reading, without the prohibitive costs of it, and increase accuracy and productivity.
