Sept 5 MDG Forum
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
in Healthcare:

How AI Applications
Will Affect Your Life
Personally and Professionally
Use of Artificial Intelligence in medical technology is just beginning to impact our industry.
In the late 1990's, the internet began to change how we live our lives and, now, Artificial Intelligence is ready to do the same. 
Program Description  
We will present the impact of Artificial Intelligence in medical technology from four perspectives: 
  • Overall industry benefits driven by the need for outcome prediction
  • Technological impacts from a broad range of applications and devices
  • Patient care and outcome prediction from patient records
  • Real-time risk analysis during laparoscopic surgery
Imagine while a surgeon is performing laparoscopic surgery, the images from the laparoscope are analyzed in real-time and can alert the surgeon to the level of risk of particular movements. This capability can improve outcomes globally since training can vary significantly.
Imagine having a heart attack that leaves you in a coma. Should the healthcare team continue to engage in life support or not? How can the team predict revival from the coma within ethical boundaries?
Imagine enabling access to electronic health records to predict the effects of life style diseases on a population and individual basis.
This is the promise of Artificial Intelligence 
in the not-to-distant future.

Dr. Daniel Hashimoto   
Surgical AI & Innovation Fellow, Massachusetts General Hospital
Daniel Hashimoto co-founded the MGH Surgical Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Laboratory. He collaborates with MIT CSAIL in the development of a computer vision system for real-time analysis of surgical video. The goal is developing the technology to augment surgical decision-making by providing clinicians with real-time, intraoperative probabilistic estimates of complications.

In addition to being a recent TEDx speaker (not yet posted), he has also published on using VR and AR to assist in the acquisition of surgical technical skills, curriculum development for surgical skills, and the utilization of wearable technology in the operating room. He also spoke at the 2018 World Medical Innovation Forum.

Chris Poulin
Research Scientist and Partner, Patterns and Predictions
Chris Poulin has also been a machine learning, and data science subject matter expert with Microsoft (Director). He served as Director of the Durkheim Project, a nonprofit collaboration with the U.S. VA and Facebook, Inc., sponsored by DARPA. He was Co-Director of a machine learning group at Dartmouth College, which focused on large-scale machine learning (sponsored by IARPA).

Poulin has lectured on artificial intelligence and big data at the U.S. Naval War College. He is author of the book Artificial Intelligence in Behavioral and Mental Health (Elsevier, 2015).

Les Servi, PhD
Group Leader, MITRE Corporation
Les Servi received his Ph.D. in engineering from Harvard University, worked at Bell Laboratories and GTE (now Verizon) Laboratories in telecommunication research. He currently runs a Cyber Analytics and Health Analytics project. He served on a Defense Science Board (DSB) task force on Counter- insurgency (COINS) and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Operation in 2010-11 and another DSB study on Constrained Military Operations in 2016.

Dr. Servi is well published in the area of Operations Research with five papers having more than 200 citations and 10 patents. He has also served as an editor of Operations Research, Management Science, INFORMS Journal of Computing.

Mohammad Ghassemi
Founder and President, Ghamut Corporation - The Ghamut Corporation is the 2017 MassChallenge winner.

Mohammad Ghassemi received his Ph.D. from the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at MIT and will join the department this fall. In addition to receiving several academic distinctions including the Gates-Cambridge, and Goldwater Fellowships, he has published over 25 peer-reviewed papers in venues including the Proceedings of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and Science Translational Medicine.

His projects include developing a large open-access intensive care database and an algorithm for real-time social analysis using a wearable. Mohammad recently spoke at a TEDx event in Boston.
