Information Extraction Framework for Facilitating the Assessment of the Quality of Radiology Interpretations
Presenter:

Marius Petruc

Date:

03-04-2021

Time:

4:30pm-5:00pm

Location:

Zoom

Assessing the quality of imaging interpretations requires that the results of radiological interpretations be compared with those of subsequent surgical-pathology results, when available. The manual process is inherently slow, tedious and expensive, and unless systematic errors occur in the interpretations, discrepancies are unlikely to be detected. Classical computational methods using Natural Language Processing entail using

Location:

Zoom

Plant phenotyping technologies have been developing rapidly over the last 2 decades. Plant sensors are becoming more precise, faster, easier to use and with lower cost. However, there are still several bottleneck issues in plant sensing, including the changing environmental conditions, the great variances on the plant, and the complicated GxTxEinteractions. These issues keep phenotyping difficult
