About AIME

The Society for Artificial Intelligence in MEdicine (AIME) was established in 1986 with two main goals: 

  1. to foster fundamental and applied research in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to medical care and medical research, and
  2. to provide a forum for reporting significant results achieved at biennial conferences

A major activity of this society has been a series of international conferences, from Marseille, France, in 1987 to Pavia, Italy, in 2015, held biennially over the last 26 years. Next year, the AIME17 conference will be held in Vienna, Austria from June 21st-24th, 2017.

 

Program

The AIME17 conference will be a unique opportunity to present and improve the international state of the art of AI in Medicine from perspectives of theory, methodology, and application. For this purpose, AIME 2017 will include invited lectures, full and short papers, tutorials, workshops, and a doctoral consortium. We kindly ask you to communicate about the AIME17 conference in order to invite interested scientists with AI, CS, medical informatics or medical background to join the AIME community.

Keynote speakers:

Stefan Schulz 

Stefan SCHULZ, Univ. Graz, A: Annotating clinical narratives with SNOMED CT:
The thorny way towards interoperability of clinical routine data.
[Sponsored by ECCAI]

The EU project, ASSESS CT, investigated the fitness for use of clinical terminologies to enable EHR interoperability. Information extraction from clinical narratives using NLP as well as terminology binding to clinical information models was identified as two major use cases.
To this end, terminology experts built gold standard annotations using SNOMED CT and investigated the reason for poor inter-annotator agreement values that had resulted from manual annotations. This talk will elucidate typical issues that affect inter-annotator agreement and therefore semantic interoperability of clinical routine data. It will show strategies to improvement and dicuss how well the axiomatic basis of the SNOMED CT terminology can be exploited for a more formalised and interoperable content of clinical records.

BIO: Stefan Schulz is a professor of Medical Informatics at the Medical University of Graz, Austria. Trained as a physician, his research encompasses electronic health records, medical language processing, biomedical terminologies, and the application of formal ontologies for biomedical knowledge representation. He has contributed to the development of clinical terminology standards such as WHO classifications and SNOMED CT. He is currently leading a project on semantic clinical data enhancement for biomarker research and improved usability for electronic patient records.

Kenneth J. (Ken) Barker RSM - Knowledge -Based Systems, T. J. Watson Research Center, NY, USA: A review on Watson question answering. [Sponsored by ECCAI]

Ken's keynote will focus on adaptations of WatsonQA for medical text, reasons for failing or inappropriate interpretations, and attempts to rebuild WatsonQA for medical tasks.
Ken heads the Natural Language Analytics Department in the Health Care and Life Sciences Organization at IBM Research. His current research examines the weaknesses of existing information gathering tools and explores contextual, collaborative, transparent and adaptable question answering technology applied in Health Care and Medicine.

BIO: Prior to joining IBM, Ken was a research scientist at the UTA, and involved in the DARPA Rapid Knowledge Formation and Machine Reading Projects and in Vulcan's Digital Aristotle Project to build intelligent scientific textbooks. Before he was Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Ottawa, and involved in research on Natural Language Semantics and Semi-Automated Interpretation of Text
