In today's episode, we are joined by Julianna Ianni, vice president of AI research & development at Proscia.
In our conversation, Julianna shares her and her team's research focused on developing applications that would help make the life of pathologists easier by enabling tasks to quickly and accurately be diagnosed using deep learning and AI.
We also explore their paper "A Pathology Deep Learning System Capable of Triage of Melanoma Specimens Utilizing Dermatopathologist Consensus as Ground Truth
", while talking through how ML aids pathologists in diagnosing Melanoma by building a multitask classifier to distinguish between low-risk and high-risk cases. Finally, we discussed the challenges involved in designing a model that would help in identifying and classifying Melanoma, the results they've achieved, and what the future of this work could look like.
