Medicine 2.0: Using Machine Learning to Transform Medical Practice and Discovery

In this talk, Mihaela will present her view of the transformation of medicine through the use of machine learning, and some of her own contributions.

About the event

Turing Lecture banner

The transformation of medicine through the use of machine learning is already being felt in every aspect of medicine: from clinical support for personalized diagnosis and prognosis to the estimation of individualized treatment effects without the need for clinical trials to medical discovery to the entire path of patient care. The heart of this transformation is the intelligent use of existing data. Because of the unique and complex characteristics of medical data and medical questions, many familiar methods are inadequate. Mihaela’s work develops novel machine learning methods and applies them to a wide variety of medical settings. This work achieves enormous improvements over current clinical practice and over existing machine learning methods. This talk will explore some of Mihaela’s work and vision of how data science can transform medical discovery and care.
