Additional Information

Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science dedicated to developing computer algorithms that imitate intelligent human behavior. Subfields of AI include machine learning and deep learning. Advances in AI have led to techniques that could increase breast cancer detection, improve clinical efficiency, and guide decision-making with regard to screening and prevention strategies. This presentation will review key terminology and concepts, discuss common AI models and methods to validate and evaluate these models, describe emerging AI applications in breast imaging, and outline challenges and future directions.
