Turing Lecture - Medicine 2.0: Using Machine Learning to Transform Medical Practice and Discovery (Mihaela van der Schaar, The Alan Turing Institute and University of Oxford)


The Knowledge Center | The British Library (link Map)
Euston Road | London | NW1 2DB | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

This talk covers the transformation of medicine through the use of machine learning, and some of Mihaela’s own contributions. This transformation 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.
