Research lab

Machine learning algorithms have vast potential in healthcare, but many advances in research fail to translate to clinical practice today. In part, this is due the the lack of representative medical data. But even with larger datasets, algorithms can fail to generalize because of biased datasets, or inadequate evaluation during development. Our research focuses of overcoming these challenges by studying methods for limited labelled data, such as transfer learning, and responsible practices for machine learning in health in general.
