Season 2, Episode 30

The Robustness and Suitability

of AI Algorithms for Clinical Practice

This episode's guests:

Angelique Levi and Sudhir Perencheri - Yale School of Medicine-

This episode of Digital Pathology Today™ our guests are Angelique Levi, MD and Dr. Sudhir Perincheri, PhD, MBBS from Yale School of Medicine.

They're coming - AI and machine learning algorithms in digital pathology. How do we go about assessing the robustness and suitability of these new tool for use in actual clinical practice?

We're talking about how new tools are going to be incorporated into clinical practice, and the impact of these new tools in various practice settings, such as academic medical centers, community outreach, and private practice. What does this mean for the training of the next generation of pathologists? We're only human, after all, but what about machine algorithms? What level of mistakes or misses is allowable and what if these tools are too sensitive, could they actually slow us down and make life more complicated for us?
