Machine learning for pathology
Date: 2019-10-04 2:20pm-3:30pm
Location: R103, CSIE
Speaker: Dr. Tung-Hung Su, National Taiwan University Hospital
Hosted by: Prof. Winston Hsu


With the advancement of scanning technique for whole slide imaging, digital pathology become a new paradigm for pathological diagnosis. The rapid accumulation of digital histopathological images increase the demand for computer-aided diagnosis using machine learning algorithms. Both of the supervised, or unsupervised learning may be applied in certain clinical or research scenarios. The machine learning application in digital pathology includes computer-assisted diagnosis, content based image retrieval, and discovery new clinicopathological relationships. However, these computational technology also faces several challenges regarding to image size, tissue annotation, problems of scanning and image processing.
The new multiplexed histopathological imaging platform enables high-dimensional single-cell analysis. However, the huge dataset challenges the data scientists to analyze multiple parameters of single cells with spatial information in a complicated microenvironment. These new pathological technologies open another new field of research and might revolutionize the current pathological diagnosis.
Dr. Tung-Hung Su received his M.D. degree from National Taiwan University College of Medicine in 2001, and received his Ph.D. degree from Graduate Institute of Clinical Medicine, National Taiwan University College of Medicine in 2015. He is an attending physician specialized in Hepatology, and a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, National Taiwan University Hospital since 2016. His research interest is the treatment of liver fibrosis, management of viral hepatitis B, C and hepatocellular carcinoma and have published a number of research papers in these fields. He received Wu Ta-You Memorial Award and Outstanding Research Award for Junior Faculty, National Taiwan University Hospital in 2016. He went to Prof. Garry Nolan's laboratory in Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University during 2017 to 2019 as a visiting scholar, to study the multiparametric tissue imaging, and mass cytometry. Currently, he is developing the platform and analytic pipeline for multiparametric tissue imaging at National Taiwan University Hospital.
