PathLAKE and the emerging role of artificial intelligence in digital pathology

Last year, we hosted a special webinar edition of Pathology Horizons. This September, we are looking forward to being able to hold our 2021 conference in the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa, Newcastle, N. Ireland.  

To give you an idea of the speaker quality and the type of content to expect at Pathology Horizons 2021, we are taking a look back at Dr. David Snead’s presentation from Pathology Horizons 2020, entitled ’PathLAKE and the emerging role of artificial intelligence in digital pathology’.

Dr. Snead has been a full-time consultant at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) since 1997. He has led the project to adopt digital pathology there for the last decade. He now heads the UHCW NHS trust digital pathology centre of excellence. He collaborates closely with colleagues of the Computer Science School University of Warwick and in his talk, he will discuss his current work evaluating algorithms aimed at improving the pathologist’s lot through the automation of mundane time-consuming quantitative tasks.
