  • I have not seen any significant use of AI in my own clinical practice during my time in Boston, but exciting developments in the last two years hold much promise.
  • One of the potential benefits when integrating AI into medical practice is improvement of clinical decision making and diagnosis.
  • The concept of using AI to provide clinical decision support systems for physicians has been studied in some medical specialties with varying degrees of effectiveness.
  • Comparisons between the paradigms of machine learning based, knowledge based, and hybrid methods have not yielded a clear model on how AI best uses clinical data to arrive at a diagnosis.
  • There is promise that Deep Learning methodology will allow for AI to train much like a medical resident does through a large data set of disease presentations.

A New Method to Visualize Deep Neural Networks  #visualization #deeplearning #MachineLearning

  • Abstract: We present a method for visualising the response of a deep neural network to a specific input.
  • Title: A New Method to Visualize Deep Neural Networks
  • The method overcomes several shortcomings of previous methods and provides great additional insight into the decision making process of convolutional networks, which is important both to improve models and to accelerate the adoption of such methods in e.g. medicine.
  • For image data for instance our method will highlight areas that provide evidence in favor of, and against choosing a certain class.
  • In experiments on ImageNet data, we illustrate how the method works and can be applied in different ways to understand deep neural nets.
