Machine and Deep Learning for Medical Imaging with MATLAB

Tuesday, March 29, 2022

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

About the Event

AI techniques are increasingly seen as powerful tools to address many complex problems. In this technical talk, we’ll explore in detail the workflow involved in developing and adapting machine and deep learning algorithms for medical image classification or segmentation problems using real-world case studies. Some of the tasks we’ll explore in this workflow are:

  • Import and manage large sets of images without loading them into memory
  • Build networks from scratch with a drag-and-drop interface of Deep Network Designer
  • Perform classification tasks on images, and pixel-level semantic segmentation on images
  • Semi-automate ground-truth labeling efforts to increase training dataset
  • Understand hyperparameter tuning and why it’s important.
