Biomedical Signal and Image Processing: Challenges and Future Directions

Dr. Farhan Riaz
Over the last decade, the significant advances in digitization has led to the scope of work in several areas. One such area that has seen significant growth due to this digitization is medicine. Recently, clinical diagnostic methods are generating a humungous amount of data which leads to some inherent allied problems leading to research in data security, data integrity, data storage etc. Lately, the evolution in the area of Artificial Intelligence has opened the doors to perform an automatic analysis of biomedical images/signals. In this talk, we will talk about how AI in biomedicine is in the process of reshaping the medical research landscape worldwide. In this context, research performed on several imaging modalities and some research findings will be presented in this talk.

Dr. Farhan Riaz will be talking about “Biomedical Signal and Image Processing: Challenges and Future Directions” on Friday, November 19, 2021, at 10:30 AM. This is a CS Research Seminar.

Venue for in-person attendees: SSE 10-301
