Dr. Jayashree Kalpathy-Cramer is the Chief of the Division of Artificial Medical Intelligence and Endowed Chair in Data Science in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Colorado. Previously, she was an associate professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School and a Co-Director of the QTIM lab and the Center for Machine Learning at the Martinos Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. She has been actively involved in machine learning, data science, and AI activities locally, nationally, and internationally.
An electrical engineer by training, Dr. Kalpathy-Cramer returned to academia after almost a decade in the semiconductor industry with a research pivot towards healthcare. Her lab works at the intersection of computer science and medicine and spans the spectrum from novel algorithm development to clinical deployment. Over the last decade, they have been developing novel machine learning algorithms for medical image analysis as well as methods to evaluate the limitations of these techniques. In addition to fundamental machine learning research, they have worked closely with clinicians in ophthalmology, radiology and oncology and to develop and translate tools to the clinic. Dr. Kalpathy-Cramer and her research team have investigated the use of AI in brain, breast, lung, prostate, and cervical cancer. She has authored over 200 peer-reviewed publications and has written over a dozen book chapters. She is passionate about the potential that AI and machine learning have to improve the care of cancer patients.Sessions:
