Event description

Description

Mammography is a critical tool in breast cancer diagnosis, offering powerful visual analysis of complex biological conditions. Join MIT President Emerita Susan Hockfield and The Boston Globe’s Linda Pizzuti Henry to explore new strategies for integrating machine learning algorithms into clinical care. Collaborators Regina Barzilay and Constance Lehman will offer insight into the potential of new AI-driven solutions to transform image-based assessments. Barzilay, motivated in part by her own experience with breast cancer, will discuss how she uses machine learning tools to improve consistency and accuracy in mammography assessments, while Lehman will share perspectives on the strengths and limitations of current approaches to mammography and elements critical for successful integration of AI discoveries into clinical care. Together, the team will offer insight into the future of mammography and shed new light on novel solutions for biomedical challenges.
