Speaker: Professor Lei Xing, Jacob Haimson & Sarah S. Donaldson Professor, Radiation Oncology - Radiation Physics, Stanford University

Artificial intelligence driven by deep learning have attracted much attention in the several years and is being increasing adopted in healthcare for various applications. The enormous success of deep learning stems from its unique capabilities of extracting essential features from big data and then making inferences. The purpose of this talk is to summarize recent advances in interpretable AI, identify the pitfalls of current data-driven approaches, and provide my perspectives on the future applications of AI in biomedical physics and medicine.
