How Machine Learning Can Improve Medical Outcomes
Eric Oermann, MD, Neurosurgeon at Mount Sinai Health System, New York, discusses a slightly different topic in this talk: How machine learning can improve medical outcomes. He begins by emphasizing that deep learning is automated feature engineering and that deep neural networks learn hierarchical feature representations. To apply this to the work of physicians, Dr. Oermann poses the questions: What problems do we face as physicians and how can we translate those into machine learning to create better outcomes? He then provides examples of areas where machine learning could play a role in the hospital: Assessment in the ICU, brain biopsies, faster interpretation of imaging and AI augmented radiosurgery (AIAR).
About the speaker
Eric Oermann, MD
Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York City, USA
Instructor of Neurological Surgery in the Mount Sinai Health System and the Director of AISINAI, Mount Sinai’s artificial intelligence research group.
He studied mathematics at Georgetown University with a focus on differential geometry. Prior to attending medical school, Dr. Oermann spent six months with the President’s Council on Bioethics studying human dignity under the mentorship of physician-philosopher Edmund Pellegrino.
Dr. Oermann has won numerous awards for his scholarship including fellowships from the American Brain Tumor Association and Doris Duke Charitable Research Foundation where he was first exposed to neural networks and deep learning.
He has published over sixty manuscripts spanning basic research on machine learning, tumor genetics, and the philosophy of medicine. As a PGY-2, Dr. Oermann was selected as one of Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 for his work in using machine learning to develop prognostic models for cancer patients. Dr. Oermann completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Google (Google Health / Verily Life Sciences).
He is interested in weakly supervised learning, reinforcement learning with imperfect information, and in building artificial neural networks that more accurately model biological neural networks. As a neurosurgeon, he is also interested in the application of deep learning to solve a wide range of problems in the medical sciences and improving clinical care.
