    Presented byBrown-Lifespan Center for Digital Health and theSlater Technology Fund


    Among the more promising applications of artificial intelligence in healthcare is facilitating faster, more accurate diagnoses. AI has demonstrated success in facilitating differential diagnoses for radiology and pathology and poses enticing possibilities for more general point-of-care applications. In this panel, technologists and researchers who are pushing the boundaries of AI in healthcare will share their views on how AI is transforming the diagnostic process. Among the topics to be discussed are:

    • Different technological/algorithmic approaches to applying AI to differential diagnosis
    • Key issues driving adoption of AI technologies among physicians and other practitioners
    • Ethical issues associated with using AI for diagnosis

    Who Should Attend?

    • Providers interested in (and open to) computer-supported diagnosis
    • Insurers/payers seeking to reduce cost and time-to-diagnosis (including for COVID-19 and long-tail diseases)
    • AI technologists working on diagnostic applications of machine learning

    The Grassmann manifolds G(k,n) of k-planes in n-dimensional Euclidean space are important spaces in a variety of topological contexts. However, if one asks for a specific triangulation of one of these spaces the result is usually disappointment. In this talk I will discuss a method to build what I call an approximate triangulation via persistent homology techniques. Several examples will be included.



    Kevin Knudson is a professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Florida, where he currently serves as department chair. His primary mathematical interests lie in the area of applied topology with a special emphasis on multiparameter persistent homology and discrete Morse theory. Knudson is the co-host, with freelance writer Evelyn Lamb, of the My Favorite Theorem podcast. When not thinking about math or administrative tasks, he enjoys kayaking, playing the guitar (poorly), and cooking.


    Data Wednesdays

    The Data Science Initiative joins the Center for Computational and Molecular Biology (CCMB ) every Wednesday afternoon, 4 – 5 pm during the academic year to present lecturers in various mathematical and statistical fields worldwide, as well as local researchers on Brown’s campus. The aim is to provide students, staff, faculty, and visitors with an introduction to current research topics in the fields of data science, mathematics, statistics and computer science. Please check our events page for more information on these and other events of interest.
