Hwee Kuan Lee, researcher at the Bioinformatics Institute of the A*STAR Center for Frontier AI Research (CFAR) in Singapore, will present "AI Theory, Generative Models, and Biomedical Applications" on Thursday, July 20, 2023 at 13:00 at the Ömer Korzay Conference Hall of the Faculty of Electrical and Electronics. The summary of the speech and the short CV of the speaker are attached.

Abstract: In this seminar, I will discuss some AI theory, generative models and its applications. In particular, I will focus on a specific use case on digital pathology. In the digital pathology work, we proposed an indirect way of training our AI models using a weakly supervised, multi-instance, multi-task learning paradigm that avoids detailed annotations on WSI. With this indirect way of training our AI, we demonstrated that our learning paradigm can elucidate detailed morphology of WSI very well.

Bio: Hwee Kuan Lee’s current research work involves the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) research for clinical and biological applications. His laboratory focuses on diverse research activities, including more basic AI centric research as well as AI applications.
