New Date for Prof Dan Stoyanov Seminar
OncoEng, in particular its OncoEng+ network, together with colleagues at BioTrib are pleased to announce the following seminar, by Professor Dan Stoyanov
Title: Artificial Intelligence in Endoscopy: Towards Improving Polyp Detection and Diagnosis
Endoscopy has seen some of the earliest uses of AI systems in the interventional setting. Real-time video analysis can help with detecting and diagnosing polyps and drive standardization of care. Navigation may also be enhanced by providing mapping of the colon and the observed tissue surfaces. Other opportunities are also present in creating automated monitoring and reporting systems. This talk will present some of our latest efforts in this area and give a perspective on the challenges and opportunities in translating AI systems into practice.
Dan Stoyanov is a Professor of Robot Vision in UCL Computer Science, Director of the Wellcome/EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS), and Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies. He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, and Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. His research is focused on developing surgical robotics and artificial intelligence for improving minimally invasive interventions. Dan is also Chief Scientist at Digital Surgery (a Medtronic company) and co-founder of Odin Vision Ltd, both companies specialising in developing AI products for interventional healthcare.
OncoEng is a UKRI EPSRC funded flagship programme grant concerned with research into the identification and prophylactic intervention of metastatic bone disease in the spine. It comprises a collaboration between the University of Leeds, Imperial College London and University College London. OncoEng+ network brings together a researchers and innovators from a wide set of disciplines with the UK and abroad to tackle the challenges that underpin cancer using engineering and the physical sciences.
