AIAS Seminar: Ruben Pauwels

A.I. in Radiology - Concepts and Applications

Info about event


Monday 7 September 2020,  at 14:15 - 15:30


The AIAS Auditorium




Due to COVID-19 there is a limited number of participants allowed in the auditorium to comply with physical distancing. Please sign up by email to info@aias.au.dk.

Speaker: Ruben Pauwels, AIAS Fellow and Associate Professor



A.I. is the hottest topic in radiology at the moment. Thanks to the availability of large, digital datasets, as well as recent developments in deep learning and increased computational power, researchers are exploring potential applications of A.I. in medicine, including computer-aided diagnosis. This lecture will provide a broad overview of different A.I. concepts, illustrate how an A.I. system is ‘trained’, and discuss various clinical applications of A.I. in medicine based on published and on-going research.

What is an AIAS Seminar?

The AIAS Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellow or by other speakers proposed by the fellows. In each seminar, one fellow will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session.
