Deep learning for healthcare technologies
With the confluence of very large datasets now becoming available in healthcare along with methods from deep learning to providing new ways of using them, healthcare is poised to adopt new tools based on such technologies in coming years. This talk describes work undertaken between the University of Oxford and the Oxford University Hospitals in developing early systems in this field.
David A. Clifton is Associate Professor of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford and leads the Computational Health Informatics (CHI) Laboratory, after having trained in information engineering at the University of Oxford. CHI Lab focusses on the interface between machine learning and healthcare, in partnership with leading clinicians from the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, and has grown rapidly to over 20 members in the two years since its founding, with support from the Wellcome Trust, UK Department of Health, NHS National Institute of Health Research, Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council, Royal Academy of Engineering, Natural Environment Research Council, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
