-----Session 1 - Chairs: Finale Doshi-Velez and Jenna Wiens-----
9:00- 9:45    Abraham Verghese, MD, MACP, Stanford University
"Machine Learning, Story and the Two Culture Proposition in Medicine"
To examine the nature of clinical judgment in the age of machine learning and the two cultures of paraclinical data measurement and the patient’s lived experience.
9:45-10:30    Cynthia Dwork, PhD, Harvard University
"Theory for Society: From Problem to Practice"
Latanya Sweeney famously asked, referring to privacy threats in data analysis, "Computer science got us into this mess; can computer science get us out?"  More broadly,  machine learning algorithms codify biases in the training data, exacerbating fairness concerns, and large, one-off, data sets, irreproducible by construction, are used and reused, in query after query and study after study, exacerbating validity concerns.  We survey ongoing efforts in the theoretical computer science community to tackle these problems.  We start with differential privacy, a definition of privacy tailored to the statistical analysis of large datasets and a phalanx of accompanying algorithmic techniques.  We note a surprising application of differential privacy: the Reusable Holdout set.  Finally, we close with a glimpse of the emerging theory of algorithmic fairness.

"Working with Medical Colleagues to Produce Effective Predictor Systems" [Slides for Greiner's Presentation]
With today’s excitement over the many successful applications of machine learning to medical applications, an increasing number of medical researchers and clinicians are starting collaborations with machine learning researchers.  This is a great opportunity to produce useful results, for a wide variety of important tasks.  There are, however, many subtle issues in designing, and evaluating, these performance systems --  e.g., based on the differences between standard biostatistics vs supervised machine learning, between emulation vs objective optimization, on the focus on the performance task, related to selection bias (especially for prognosis), etc. This presentation provides information that I wish I had known, when I started -- first using simple examples to identify and characterize these distinctions then, where appropriate, suggesting solutions. We hope this information will raise awareness of these varied issues and approaches, which will facilitate many future effective collaborations.

14:45-15:30     Joyce Lee, MD, MPH, University of Michigan
"When perfect algorithms meet Imperfect healthcare systems"
 Of all chronic diseases, diabetes is perhaps the one with the greatest opportunity for reaping the benefits of machine learning, given the role of patient management and the data-intensive nature of the condition.  However, there are a multitude of barriers for realizing this opportunity.  I will describe the current state of diabetes from the patient, provider, and health system perspective, share an example of how a remarkable patient online community decided to solve some of these problems, and describe opportunities for open science collaboration among multidisciplinary stakeholders.

"Unlocking Healthcare Data to Support Research in Machine Learning"
Modern healthcare systems produce massive volumes of data. Such large repositories offer rich and diverse data that can be leveraged with advanced machine learning to create knew knowledge and understanding about medicine and healthcare. However, fundamental barriers exist that have restricted the availability and utility of healthcare data to the machine learning community at large. In this talk, I will give an overview of some fundamental challenges in creating such data resources and creating fruitful partnerships with the machine learning community. A case study using the MIMIC Database will be presented, and the lessons learnt will be discussed.

 9:45-10:30   Danielle Belgrave, PhD, Imperial College London and MSR Cambridge
"From Endotype Discovery towards Personalised Healthcare"
Machine learning advances are opening new routes to more precise healthcare, from the discovery of disease subtypes for stratified interventions to the development of personalised interactions supporting self-care between clinic visits. As medicine pivots from treating diagnoses to treating mechanisms the need for more intelligent phenotyping and frequent interaction brings machine learning and AI into the spotlight. In this talk, I will present a flexible framework for endo-phenotype discovery through the application of probabilistic modelling to disambiguate diseases where there are heterogeneous phenomena. This strategy enables us to develop a more personalised approach to healthcare whereby information can be aggregated from multiple sources within a unified modelling framework. The work presented will be motivated within specific clinical contexts.

"Artificial Intelligence: Transforming healthcare access and delivery"
Healthcare is one of the most exciting industries for applied artificial intelligence (AI), allowing for better prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Increasingly, important progress is derived from collaborations between computer scientists and clinician scientists, translating machine learning performance into measurable impact in clinical practices worldwide. This talk will discuss case studies of these collaborations producing results in cardiology, radiology and palliative care.
