Please join us for the Change Seminar on Tuesday *3/27/2018* in *EEB 003*.

*Who:* Ben Wilson, Intellectual Ventures Laboratory
*What:* AI for low-cost mobile medicine applications
*When:* Tuesday, March 27th, 12-1 PM
*Where:* EEB 003

*Bio:*
Ben Wilson is a principal investigator at Intellectual Ventures Laboratory
in Bellevue, WA. His group investigates optics, imaging systems, and
computer vision for applications in global health and global development.
Ben has a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington.
Prior to working at Intellectual Ventures Lab, he worked for Pacific
Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, WA.

*Abstract:*
While the virtues of artificial intelligence are debated in the developed
world, many health systems in developing countries suffer from a lack of
trained doctors and medical technicians. Artificial intelligence provides a
compelling means to fill this gap and bring the expertise of trained
medical professions to more people at lower cost. Unlike telemedicine,
which requires data connectivity and on-call doctors, intelligent
diagnostic aids can assist users with minimal training to make life saving
diagnoses with locally-hosted apps. In this seminar, we will discuss how
computer vision algorithms leveraging state of the art deep learning
techniques can expand the capabilities of health workers in the developing
world. We will give an overview of several applications where Intellectual
Ventures Lab is using these techniques, including malaria, cervical cancer,
and lower respiratory infection.
