SYMPOSIUM: AI & Machine Learning for Digital Pathology - From Biobanks to Knowledge Banks 2019, 6 June

We cordially invite you to the "Symposium AI & Machine Learning for Digital Pathology" - From Biobanks to Knowledge Banks - (Flyer) which will take place on Thursday, June 6, 2019, 10:00 – 16:00.
Where: Medical University Graz New Med Campus, Neue Stiftingtalstrasse 2, Graz
Venue: Hörsaal MC 5 (MC 1.A.EG.021)

The symposium is co-organized by the Institute of Pathology and the Institute for Medical
Informatics, Statistics and Documentation of the Medical University of Graz.
Participation is free, pre‐registration via e‐Mail to: penelope.kungl@medunigraz.at
AI in pathology is very promising, e.g. deep learning even exceeds human performance in specific cases. However, in the context of medicine it is important for a human expert to validate the outcome and/or to interact with the AI. Current AI models lack an explicit explanation component that allows a human to understand the results. There is a need for transparency and thus traceability of such solutions to make them usable for medicine. The combined use of human intelligence and AI for context understanding should
bring important insights and new methodological solutions.

Machine learning requires big training data sets that well cover the spectrum of a variety of human diseases in different organ systems. Data sets have to meet quality- and regulatory criteria and must be well annotated for machine learning at patient-, sample- and image-level. Here biobanks play a central role providing large collections of high-quality well-annotated samples and data. The main challenges are finding biobanks containing ‘‘fit-for-purpose’’ samples, providing quality related meta-data, gaining access to standardized medical data and annotations, and mass scanning of slides including efficient data management solutions.
