#AI for infectious diseases: #Pneumonia, #TB and #Covid-19

Speaker:  KC Santosh – SD, United States
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


AI has contributed a lot to healthcare (AI-based decision-support systems with clinical significance). Infectious disease outbreak is no exception. The talk will provide a walk through about how AI-guided tools help in predicting/detecting infectious diseases such as Pneumonia, TB, and Covid-19. Infectious disease prediction and unexploited data will be discussed, as predictive analytical tools are limited to education and training (at least for Covid-19). It also covers shallow learning (handcrafted features) as well as deep learning mechanism in both image modalities: CT scan and Chest X-ray. Additionally, an obvious question, how big data is big will be discussed by taking two key points into account: data augmentation and transfer learning.
