Episode 35 - Making Digital Pathology AI Native
This episode's guests: Leo Grady
We're talking with Leo Grady, CEO of Paige, a company developing AI based solutions in digital pathology to optimize patient outcomes.
We're going to be talking about his experiences in diagnostics, radiology, pathology, and artificial intelligence. We’ll discuss the early history of Paige, its relationship with Memorial Sloan Kettering, what products Paige is developing, what the future holds, and their strategy for developing partnerships.
It’s been said that radiology is at least a decade ahead of pathology in terms of going digital but is this accurate and fair? Radiology images, after all, are digitally native whereas pathology images are not. What do we mean by digitally native? What do we mean by AI native? Is it possible to create an AI native environment in digital pathology?
