[intermediate] Deep Learning for Healthcare
Machine learning (ML), especially Deep Learning (DL), is expected to have a significant impact on healthcare, with a widely accepted belief that it will eventually transform the field. This course will provide a window into this exciting interdisciplinary field, both from a research and practical perspective. We will first set the stage by giving an overview of clinical care, describing the various datasets in healthcare, and talking about the unique challenges in this field. We will then discuss numerous ways in which deep learning has made an impact by solving problems using medical imaging, electronic health records (EHRs), and time series datasets, with models like convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, and graph neural networks; and techniques like fully supervised learning, self-supervised learning, and reinforcement learning. We will then talk about future work in this interdisciplinary area and conclude by discussing the challenges associated with translating research into clinical practice.

Dr. Sumit Chopra is an Associate Professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU. In addition, he holds a joint position of an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, where he is also the Director of Machine Learning Research. He received his MS and PhD degrees from Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU. Prior to being a faculty at NYU, he was the co-founder of a well-funded startup called Imagen Technologies, developing AI-based medical devices. Before Imagen, he was a senior research scientist at Facebook AI Research (FAIR) (now Meta AI Research) and at AT&T Labs-Research. His research interests lie in statistical machine learning, focusing on representation learning in self-supervised settings, with applications in computer vision, natural language understanding, and healthcare. He has published more than 50 papers in the field and has led the development of multiple AI-based medical devices approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
