Machine learning for medical image analysis using big data

Rapid development in data sharing and computational resources are reshaping the medical imaging research field from small-scale (e.g., a cohort < 300 subjects) to large-scale (e.g., big data with thousands or more subjects). However, traditional medical image analysis techniques can be inadequate to overcome the new challenges in big data; including robustness of algorithm, inter-subject variabilities, computational resources etc. In this talk, I will (1) present an end-to-end large-scale lifespan brain image analyses on more than 5000 patients, (2) discuss the challenges and opportunities in machine learning for medical image analysis using big data, and (3) present my recent works in deep learning for medical image analyses.
