 Session Abstract – PMWC Silicon Valley


Machine learning is revolutionizing the potential of imaging for precision medicine. To realize that potential, we need not only expand rigorous ML research, but also solve several big-picture challenges in this emerging field. This panel will feature experts from research and industry to briefly highlight several use cases and then discuss bigger challenges such as data security and sharing, models for federated development of machine learning solutions, and the need for shared platforms and tools.
