Seminar - Artificial Intelligence for health and well-being: applications in Alzheimer
Seminar - Artificial Intelligence for health and well-being: applications in Alzheimer's, Zika, Covid-19, e Diabetes | Anderson Rocha | 23 June | 9h30
Subject: Artificial Intelligence for health and well-being: applications in Alzheimer's, Zika, Covid-19, e Diabetes.
Abstract: In this talk, we will see how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming our everyday lives in diverse aspects including how we approach key medical conditions to enable us to empower our repertoire of methods to fight them back. We will see how AI methods can pinpoint areas in the brain associated with Alzheimer's, isolate and propose biomarkers for Zika, Covid-19 and other diseases and also predict one-year ahead of time if a person with diabetes is going blind or not.
Bio: Anderson Rocha is a full professor of Artificial Intelligence and Digital Forensics at the Institute of Computing, University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. He is the Director of the Artificial Intelligence Lab., Recod,ai, and also the Director of the Institute for the 2019-2023 term. He has actively worked as an associate editor of important international journals such as the IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (T.IFS), Elsevier Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation (JVCI), and IEEE Signal Processing Letters (SPL), and the IEEE Security & Privacy Magazine. He is an elected affiliate member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences (ABC) and the Brazilian Academy of Forensic Sciences (ABC). He is a two-term elected member of the IEEE Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (IFS-TC) and its chair for the 2019-2020 term. He is a Microsoft Research and a Google Research Faculty Fellow, important academic recognitions bestowed to researchers by Microsoft Research and Google, respectively. In addition, in 2016, he has been awarded the Tan Chin Tuan (TCT) Fellowship, a recognition promoted by the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation in Singapore. Finally, he is ranked Top-2% among the most influential scientists worldwide, according to recent studies from Research.com and Standford/PlosOne. Currently, Prof. Anderson is the coordinator of the Artificial Intelligence Hub for Health and Wellbeing (Viva Bem), funded by Samsung. Recently, his research gave rise to a new Covid-19 test licensed by Lacen (Laboratory associated with Brazilian Regulation Agency, Anvisa) and his research on Alzheimer's spurred collaboration with Univ. of California and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in U.S.
