MTW seminar: Recent research on AI-based medical image analysis at Shanghai JiaoTong University in China

Welcome to a MedTech West lunchseminar on Recent research on AI-based medical image analysis with Professor Jie Yang from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China.

In this talk, two recent research work on AI-based medical diagnosis developed in Prof. Yang´s lab will be presented. The first method is related to breast cancer detection, where a novel laser endomicroscopy image recognition approach is developed where deep transfer recurrent learning is applied. The second method is related to lung nodule detection from CT, where adversarial networks are employed. The research work is done in collaboration with Imperial College of London / University Lyon.

Prof. Jie Yang received BSc degree in Automatic Control in Shanghai Jiao Tong University, a MSc in Pattern Recognition & Intelligent System was achieved three years later. In 1994, he received a PhD degree at Department of Computer Science, University of Hamburg, Germany. Currently, he is a Professor and a Director of Institute of Image Processing and Pattern recognition at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He is the principal investigator of more than 30 national scientific research projects in image processing, pattern recognition, data mining, and artificial intelligence, including five national research plan projects, four National Nature Foundation projects, six international cooperative projects with France, Sweden, Korea, Japan, New Zealand. He has published five books,more than 500 articles in national or international academic journals and conferences. He has supervised 5 post dr, graduated 36 PhD and 66 MSc students, awarded 6 research achievement prizes from ministry of Education, China and Shanghai municipality. One Ph.D. dissertation he supervised was evaluated as “National Best Ph.D. Dissertation” in 2009. Two Ph.D. dissertations he supervised were evaluated as “Shanghai Best Ph.D. Dissertation” in 2009 and 2010. He has owned 32 patents.

This seminar is a collaboration with the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology.
