Kimia Lab Students publish and present at ECCV and CVPR

Kimia Lab Students publish and present at ECCV and CVPR

A novel method developed by graduate students from Kimia Lab, Waterloo Engineering, Mohammed Adnan (1st-year MASc.), and Shivam Kalra (2nd year Ph.D.) has the potential to have a major impact in histopathological image analysis and cancer diagnostics. Their technique uses artificial intelligence (AI) to render digital representations of extremely high-resolution biopsy images. These digital representations can be used for real-time image search, providing critical information to pathologists for well-informed and […]

Diagnostic consensus for cancer is possible through image search using AI

Diagnostic consensus for cancer is possible through image search using AI

Pan-cancer diagnostic consensus through searching archival histopathology images using artificial intelligence A new system combining artificial intelligence (AI) with human knowledge promises faster and more accurate cancer diagnosis. The powerful technology, developed by a team led by engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo, uses digital images of tissue samples to match new cases of suspected cancer with previously diagnosed cases in a database. In […]

Artificial intelligence to give Toronto doctors a 2nd opinion

Artificial intelligence to give Toronto doctors a 2nd opinion

Physicians may soon be able to get a second opinion on your diagnosis from a form of homegrown artificial intelligence (AI). Toronto’s University Health Network (UHN) is teaming up with researchers at the University of Waterloo and the Vector Institute to develop software that can read and provide feedback on medical images like x-rays and ultrasounds. The groundbreaking technology is specifically aimed at assisting radiologists […]
