Potential Impact of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning on Imaging
RSNA Lunch & Learn

Join Fujifilm for a complimentary lunch and educational experience at RSNA 2017!

During this educational session, participants will learn about the potential impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) on radiology informatics and how large institutions are exploring new ways to use AI and ML techniques in research to develop new predictive tools within neuroimaging. In this session, we will explore some of the research that is currently underway and how artificial intelligence and machine learning are changing the way that researchers study aging and specific disease areas such as Alzheimer's.

The presenters will:

  • Explore use cases formed from current artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) research that could impact the future of radiology informatics.
  • Explain how AI and ML research could lead to new techniques for predicting progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Review the potential of combining ML with neuroimaging and genetics to improve mechanistic understanding of brain disorders.
  • Show how this research could impact the development of new diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive approaches.

Li Shen, PhD, is an associate professor at Indiana University. His research includes medical image computing, bioinformatics, machine learning, network science, visual analytics, and big data science in biomedicine. His laboratory is focused on developing computational and informatics methods for integrative analysis of multimodal imaging data, high-throughput "omics" data, cognitive and other biomarker data, electronic health record data, and rich biological knowledge such as pathways and networks, with applications to various complex disorders. The laboratory’s goal is twofold: (1) advance computer science and bioinformatics by producing novel algorithms for analyzing large-scale heterogeneous datasets; and (2) provide important new insights into the phenotypic characteristics and genetic mechanisms of normal and/or disordered biological structures and functions to impact the development of new diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive approaches. His research is primarily supported by NIH (NIBIB, NLM, NIA, NCATS, NIAAA), NSF, DOD, and NCAA.
