Seminar: Image-centered Artificial Intelligence in Health Care
Abstract: Artificial intelligence will signficantly change the practice in healthcare. It has the potential to transform the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, which will help ensure that patients get the right treatment at the right time. In this presentation, Li will introduce his research program in image centered AI-in-healthcare. Starting with a representative example, Li will share his perspective on challenges, the significance of this research, and its future state. He will also briefly elaborate his innovative and translational AI-in-healthcare research.
About the Speaker: Shuo Li is a pioneer in conducting multi-disciplinary research for image-centered artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. He is an optimization-based image analysis researcher by training, with degrees in software engineering and computer science (2006). Upon beginning his career at GE Healthcare (2006-2015), he earned a placement working side-by-side with physicians in the hospital. As such, Li has a rich and unique background that incorporates science, engineering, and healthcare. Li's research focuses on the development of AI systems to solve the most challenging clinical and fundamental image centered data AI problems in radiology, urology, surgery, rehabilitation and cancer, with an emphasis on the innovations of learning schemes (regression learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning, sparse learning, spectral learning and manifold learning). Li is a committee member in multiple highly influential conferences and societies. He is most notable for serving on the prestigious board of directors in the MICCAI society (2015-2023), where he is also the general chair for the MICCAI 2022 conference, a premier conference in medical imaging. He has over 200 publications, acted as the editor for six Springer books, and serves as an associate editor for several prestigious journals in the field. Throughout his career, he has received several awards from GE, various institutes and international organizations.
