To accelerate the development and adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) in clinical practice, radiologists need to be empowered to create AI tools at their own institutions, to meet their own patient needs. ACR AI-LAB™ offers radiologists tools designed to help them learn the basics of AI and participate directly in the creation, validation and use of healthcare AI.
ACR AI-LAB opportunities in 2019
An early look at ACR AI-LAB will be available at the 2019 ACR Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, from May 18-22, 2019, and will demonstrate how radiologists can apply their clinical knowledge to generate and improve AI. ACR AI-LAB offers a hands-on approach to educate radiologists on AI and demystify the process as algorithms are developed, trained and validated.
In June radiology residents can participate in a 60-day “Resident Breast Density Challenge” where they will use ACR DSI-hosted data and computing to train and develop an algorithm.
In the fall, an algorithm will be made available through ACR AI-LAB for radiologists to train in their local institutions. ACR members will have access to sample data from publicly available patient datasets along with user-friendly computational tools, and can begin learning to annotate datasets and train AI models. Other algorithms will be made available moving forward.
