As part of the School of Science and Technology's Computing and Informatics Research Seminar Series, Dr Marzia Hoque, Anglia Ruskin University presents: AI to tackle real-world challenges of today's healthcare ecosystem.

Abstract

Artificial intelligence (AI) is going to gradually transform the landscape of the healthcare system, yet we are far behind to understand the day-to-day challenges of our health and social care system and to leverage the technological advances for the unmet clinical needs. This lecture will demonstrate where AI can contribute in providing a faster, precise and more accessible solution and associated challenges to do so through the following examples: 1) Transforming the qualitative (visual primitives) and quantitative (signal features) nature of visual knowledge or ‘human expertise’ for the point-of-care diagnosis at homecare and community settings and the challenges for a knowledge-driven computer vision system to appropriately represent such knowledge and 2) Quality of care vs. fragmentation of data sources to manage chronic conditions at the primary and secondary level.

Brief Biography:

Dr Marzia Hoque Tania has a multidisciplinary background of AI, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Materials Science.  Her broader research interests focus on applied AI across a wide range of real-world applications. Her current research concentrates on the interdisciplinary studies between intelligent systems, expert systems, decision support systems and self-health management systems.  She has 9 years+ research and field-level experience to work in the digital healthcare industry. She has recently completed her doctoral degree with Erasmus Mundus Action 2 FUSION scholarship on intelligent systems for pathological tests using computer vision and machine learning on point-of-care platforms. Currently, she is working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Medical Technology Research Centre of Anglia Ruskin University. She is responsible for developing and delivering collaborative projects with NHS trusts, national and global academic and industrial partners within her job role.
