Workshop: Machine learning opportunities in brain imaging and radiology, Sheffield

Workshop: Machine learning opportunities in brain imaging and radiology, Sheffield

A workshop exploring opportunities for applying machine learning techniques to neuroimaging data.

Time: 10.00 to 12.00 followed by a networking lunch 12.00 to 13.00

Agenda:

  1. Welcome
  2. Several short presentations on areas of potential application of machine learning from the neuroimaging group in the academic radiology and from machine learning scientists focussing on techniques and potential opportunities. [max 6 slides, preferably 3 or 4 slides only please, register a topic for presentation on the email link below, 2 weeks before the meeting. Presentations can be brought to the meeting on the day]
  3. Discussion arising from presentations
  4. Identification of collaborative projects and priorities
  5. Identification of potential funding streams relevant to projects

The neuroimaging group in the Academic Unit of Radiology work with large volumes of clinically acquired and research acquired brain imaging data with its associated metadata.

Areas of potential interest would be around use of machine learning to augment image analysis and interpretation; automation of analysis of clinical follow up imaging; use of language analysis to Big data collections; identifying new biomarkers; developing machine human interface for clinical translation of machine learning based techniques.

To register please reply to acradmeetings@sheffield.ac.uk by Friday 7th July. Please note that places for this workshop will be limited.
