Professor Palmer works at the School of Public Health at the University of Adelaide. He is a world-renowned genetic epidemiologist and a previous executive scientific director of the Ontario Health Study (one of the largest and most detailed patient cohorts in the world). Check out his impressive citation list and an interview from 2013 about his work in Ontario.
Associate Professor Carneiro is a computer scientist at the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies, the largest deep learning and computer vision lab in Australasia. His work focuses on medical image analysis with many widely cited papers, and he has organised the deep learning in medical imaging workshops at MICCAI (the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention conference, one of the premier conferences in the field) in 2015 and 2016. (edit: Gustavo can’t make it due to other commitments. so I will be filling in for him and talking about deep learning in his stead)
The seminar is going to cover topics including precision medicine, medical image analysis and deep learning in medicine.
The talk will be at SAHMRI in the audiotorium on the 25th of November. This will actually be the first time I have been in SAHMRI, which I am really looking forward to – the architecture is pretty great! Who doesn’t want to give a talk in a spaceship?
The event is open to anyone, so if you are interested in big data in medicine, deep learning or precision radiology, you can register here and come along.
