Event description

Description

Time for another segment of the Infinite Possibilities Series! We'll begin with a high level overview of Machine Learning from our local interest group. Next an impressive array of presenters will discuss the algorithm that makes it all possible, explore job automation and elimination, and show off how a local startup is incorporating machine learning. You'll also have the chance to hear how AI and predictive analytics are being incorporated in the surgical field. As always, we'll dive into the ethical implications of the technology — is AI about to take over YOUR job?

Allyson Cochran, Keith Murphy, and Dr. William Lyman from Carolinas Center for Surgical Outcomes Science (CCSOS), a recently-created division within Atrium Health’s Department of Surgery. They will discuss how analytics, such as artificial intelligence (ML/DL) and predictive analytics, are being incorporated into surgery.

Dr. Wlodek Zadrozny from UNCC’s computer science department, will showcase what leading researchers in Natural Language Processing are working on. He will discuss the work at UNCC's Data Science Initiative Program, including some of his students' research in machine learning, and share his experiences developing IBM Watson to win at Jeopardy.
