Transforming Digital Pathology & AI: The Path Forward

24th May 2022 - Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, Scotland

Some of our expert speaker panel includes:

Event overview

Technological advances and the increased focus on precision medicine have recently paved the way for the development of digital pathology-based approaches for quantitative pathologic assessments, namely whole slide imaging and artificial intelligence (AI)–based solutions, allowing us to explore and extract information beyond human visual perception.

However, there are several difficulties encountered in the practical use of AI in clinical diagnosis. These include the lack of sufficient annotated data for the development and validation of AI systems, the explainability of black box AI models and the difficulty in defining the ground truth data for training and validation. All of these together present significant challenges in the development and clinical translation of AI methods in the practice of pathology.

We intend to serve this in-person event as a platform to discuss the above challenges and provide the attendees an opportunity to exchange expertise, experiences and actionable information through real time discussions.

What to expect

  • Case studies and presentations from the experts on applications of AI in digital pathology
  • Live interaction with senior speakers
  • Agenda geared towards networking and close collaboration
  • 1-2-1 Partnering Meetings
  • Keynote across a sit down breakfast
  • Hands-on” product/software demo from one of the industry’s leading tech providers
  • Evening drinks reception and sit down, 3 course Gala Dinner!

We look forward to welcoming you in Scotland as we return to in-person events safely!

Spatial Biology – Accelerating Translational Research & Clinical Applications

The field of spatial biology is advancing rapidly and has already contributed to novel insights in neuroscience, infectious disease, and autoimmune disorders by opening up the study of disease pathology. Immuno-oncology on the other hand has been proving grounds for spatial biology tools, which are poised to transform clinical research in several key ways. Although it’s evident that spatial biology is supporting as well transforming drug discovery, tackling the spatial heterogeneity of tissue microenvironments from different angles, computational analysis of spatially resolved transcriptomic data and meeting the cutting-edge demands of biomedical research in general has been challenging. Furthermore, there is a significant need for collaboration between industry and academia for facilitating their application in pre-clinical and clinical settings.
