An Introduction to Machine Learning and Healthcare AI
On 19th January 2021, the Faculty of Clinical Informatics held an introductory webinar on Machine Learning as a joint session between the FCI Artificial Intelligence and Early Careers Special Interest Groups. The session was presented by Dr Kieran Zucker and Chaired by Professor Jeremy Wyatt.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies have received growing attention over the past decade. The combination of improvements in computer power and refinement of methods have resulted in a number of high profile success stories. There is growing interest in how these approaches can be applied in healthcare delivery, with an ever increasing number of tools being developed over time. Despite plans for wide scale adoption, many working in healthcare know little about machine learning and artificial intelligence. This talk will provide a basic introduction to machine learning and artificial intelligence and give a high level overview of how it works. Using a number of real world examples, focus will be given to not only the potential of machine learning in healthcare, but also some of the many pitfalls that could lead to disastrous consequences.
