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.
