Research Projects

Our research lab is focused on developing cutting-edge technologies in the fields of Computer Vision (CV) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) for Computer Aided Detection (CAD) on local and Cloud computing clusters. Specifically, we are working on applied Deep Learning (DL) for localization and segmentation, sentiment analysis and response generation with the focus on explainability (XAI).

Knee Localization

Enabling more precise and efficient analysis of issues and injuries in medical imaging can be facilitated by localizing a region of interest within an image.

Sentiment Analysis

The utilization of sentiment analysis techniques for depression detection can assist in identifying expressed emotions and opinions, enabling the identification of potential threats or opportunities.

Few-Shot Learning

Few-shot learning for segmentation provides the potential to significantly reduce the need for large amounts of annotated data, which is often costly and time-consuming to acquire.

Medication Effectiveness

ML models can be trained to predict an outcome of interest from a set of input features. XAI techniques and algorithms can be utilized to shed a light on feature importance to make better clinical decisions based on evaluated treatment efficacy.

Cloud Performance Modeling

Many critical applications are running on the cloud, ewhere scaleable infinite processing power is provided. However, due to collocation of Virtual Machine (VM) and performance interfierences, perfomamnce aware scheduling of critical and time sentsitive jobs to the cloud is needed.

Question Answering from Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Pretrained language models can be utlizied to address clinical questions from unstructure free form text in EHR. Providing potential to improve clinical decision making by accessing critical information in EHR notes.

Fairness in Segmentation

Automatic segmentation offers the potential to help surgeons in preoperative planning. However, analyzing the fairness and any probable racial and gender bias in such models has been very limited. .

Multimodal Pain Prediction

Multimodal models can be designed to integrate and process multiple sources of data as input to identify potential sources of bias and increase model fairness.

Transfer Learning for Retinal Disease Classfication

To accurately predict the most significant abnormality among multiple categories of retinal disease, with limited data in each category, state-of-the-art pretrained multi-class models are required.
