Interactive Workshop Hosted by NIH.AI and NVIDIA

Date: October 19, 2021

Recording: Next to every presentation.

Meeting Description:

Hosted by NIH.AI and NVIDIA, this highly interactive, three-hour workshop will offer opportunities to share the latest updates in applying machine learning in medical image analysis and ongoing activities across the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  NVIDIA specialists will deliver targeted presentations and NIH and Fellows will deliver lighting talks about their work. It will offer plenty of time for open discussion among peers and across disciplines.

The workshop will be hosted on Webex. Registration: NOT required. 

Meeting goals:

  • Increase awareness across the NIH community on available deep learning techniques for medical image analysis and ongoing efforts
  • Foster collaboration among meeting attendees
