Skule Lunch & Learn: Artificial Intelligence in Medicine: Will AI Replace My Clinician?

January 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Artificial intelligence is an exciting field spanning computer science, engineering, mathematics, and statistics. In recent years, it has become a hot topic that promises to revolutionize many aspects of our daily lives ranging from our cars to our health. However, only a few truly understand what artificial intelligence represents, and how it can be helpful in our professional lives.

In this talk, Professor Ervin Sejdić will discuss the recent advances of artificial intelligence and how it is transforming the healthcare industry. Professor Sejdić will also address a question that we often ask ourselves: Will artificial intelligence replace my clinician? Lastly, he will cover some of recent developments dealing with artificial intelligence and dysphagia, a swallowing disorder caused by a variety of neurological conditions (e.g., stroke, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's disease), head and neck cancer, genetic syndromes, and iatrogenic conditions or trauma. A recently proposed field called computational deglutition is a collaboration between clinicians and the data science community aimed at the development of clinically relevant algorithms that will aid clinicians during the assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders.
