Speaker: Dr. Victor Vicente Palacios, Philips Salamanca, Spain
Event date: Wednesday, 28 October 2020 04:00 pm - 05:30 pm
Place: Online

This conference is part of the AI4Health Lecture Series organised by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Life Sciences and Medicine of the University of Luxembourg. 


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming highly advanced in different disciplines and our current challenge is to transfer all of this development to the medical field and specifically to cardiology. Examples of AI using Machine Learning (ML) or Deep Learning (DL) are becoming more and more common in cardiology. In this talk, I will present the evolution of the contributions of AI to the different application areas of cardiology such as cardiac arrhythmias, ischemic heart disease, cardiac imaging, and others. Furthermore, I will introduce the projects we have developed and the ones we are currently developing in our research group at the Hospital of Salamanca (Spain), as well as show some applications.


Dr Victor Vicente Palacios is currently Clinical Data Scientist at Philips Healthcare (Salamanca, Spain); he is part of an artificial intelligence research group based on the University Hospital of Salamanca (Spain) that focuses its investigations on applying machine learning and deep learning to the clinical practice, mainly applied to cardiology. He has a master's degree in mechanical engineering from the Technical University of Madrid, and a Ph.D. in multivariate statistics from the University of Salamanca. He is also a former alumnus of the “Data Science for Social Good” program (University of Chicago) and coordinator of Datalab USAL (Data Science student research group at the University of Salamanca).
