Tech Talk 1: GenAI Applications in Large Hospitals
Speaker: Dan Elton @Mass General Brigham
Abstract: This talk will focus on applications of multimodal foundation models in healthcare. Pretrained multimodal foundation models like GPT-4 have many advantages such as lower training data needs, natural language interaction, ability to provide uncertainty information, and greater flexibility. A rapid survey of possible use cases in healthcare will be presented. I will also discuss research I have been focused on for the past few years on how deep learning based segmentation models can make radiology more quantitative and can unlock biomarkers from medical images that are useful for risk prediction.
Tech Talk 2: Vector Embeddings: The Power Behind Today AI
Speaker: Pawel Zimoch @Featrix
Abstract: Vector embeddings are becoming a big deal in machine learning, and for good reason. They are a key part of making sense of all kinds of data—from the words we write to the images we see. In this talk, we will break down what vector embeddings are and why they matter. We will start by looking at how these embeddings are shaking things up in familiar areas like text and images, where they help us build smarter and more efficient AI models. Think of Google BERT that understands our sentences, or OpenAI systems that can dream up new images. We will walk you through how these embeddings are put together, what makes them tick, and the cool stuff they can do.
