Talk abstract

His talk will define and motivate the problem of Medical AI Research, the challenges as well as recent progress at the Monash Medical AI Group. This includes component technologies such as deep learning, evaluation methodologies, human-ai interaction, and also end-to-end software-to-hardware systems for applications such as disease diagnosis, disease prediction and management, and treatment. The aim is to develop next-generation medical applications capabilities that reduce Australia’s increasingly burden of disease, and that enable transformation of Australia’s most important healthcare sectors through enhanced automation and medical AI technologies. Our research re-combines expertise in human stem cell biology, biomedical engineering, clinical research and artificial intelligence scientists. Our medical AI products have served millions of people in China, India, Japan, South Africa and Australia. According to the financial report, the revenue generated from the ophthalmology AI products A/Prof Ge’s team co-developed has generated 25 million dollars in revenue in 2022.
