Wednesday, April 21, 2021 - 19:11

In a dev.Count tech blog article titled, “80 Interesting Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning Predictions For 2021”, Dr. Anant Madabhushi predicts, “2021 will also likely see more innovation in non-black-box (interpretable AI) technologies in order to make them more amenable for use by clinicians and physicians.”
“More innovation will continue in the use of AI not just for diagnosis of disease, but also for predicting patient outcome and predicting and monitoring therapeutic response to specific drugs like chemotherapy and checkpoint inhibitors.”

A Letter From the Past Predicts the Future

An inspiring story about how CCIPD student researcher and CWRU graduating senior Daniel Shao’s experience helped him achieve his goals.

The following is an excerpt from the story in CWRU's The Daily:
Shao has already put his computer science training to work in medical research, serving as a member of Anant Madabhushi’s research team in the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics. He’s now working to publish a paper on the team’s use of machine learning to predict breast cancer patient survival by looking at their tumor pathology.

“This was the first time I was the primary owner of a research project and it was really cool to see the PI trust me in making decisions,” said Shao of the experience—one he likely wouldn’t have had as an undergraduate at other institutions.
