Lecture
Details

Dr. Leo Celi, Principal Research Scientist with MIT, will give a talk entitled: "Ensuring machine learning for healthcare works for all". 

The gaps in the medical knowledge system stem from the systematic exclusion of the majority of the world’s population from health research. These gaps combined with implicit and explicit biases lead to suboptimal medical decision making which negatively impact health outcomes for everyone, but especially those in groups typically under-represented in health research. Recent developments in machine learning and AI technologies hold some promise to address the issues with the generation of scientific evidence and human decision making. Healthcare is flawed, and it must be reformed so that it equitably benefits all. Effective and equitable machine learning, data science and AI will be an essential component of these efforts.
