Subject: Upcoming CEPET Colloquium Tuesday April 9, 2pm, MQ Hearing Hub Room 3.610

Dear CEPET Members and Friends,

Just a friendly reminder that our next colloquium will be held on April 9, 2pm, in room 3.610 of the Hearing Hub building at Macquarie University. Associate Professor Antonio Di Ieva will speak about: 'The AI-Augmented Physician: A Clinical Neuroscience Perspective'. Details below and also on the CEPET website<https://www.mq.edu.au/research/research-centres-groups-and-facilities/healthy-people/centres/centre-for-elite-performance-expertise-and-training>. Please circulate to colleagues who may be interested.

Another reminder that the 2019 CEPET Annual Workshop will be held on Monday April 29. The theme of the workshop is ‘Attention and Distraction in Expertise’. Seats are limited so please check the workshop website here<https://www.mq.edu.au/research/research-centres-groups-and-facilities/healthy-people/centres/centre-for-elite-performance-expertise-and-training/news-and-events/events/events/cepet-annual-workshop> to access the program and registration details.

We hope to see you at both events.




Centre for Elite Performance, Expertise, and Training (CEPET) 2019 Colloquia Series

A/Prof Antonio Di Ieva, Department of Clinical Medicine, Macquarie University, Australia

Antonio Di Ieva, Neurosurgeon and Computational Neuroscientist, is Associate Professor at Macquarie University, A/Prof of Neuroanatomy at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, as well as (full) Prof of Neurosurgery in Italy. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and 2 books (one in neurosurgery, “Handbook of Skull Base Surgery”, Thieme, New York, 2015, and one in computational neurosciences, “The Fractal Geometry of the Brain’”, Springer, New York, 2016). His main surgical expertise is in neuro-oncology, whilst his primary research interests are in neuroanatomy, neuroimaging, cognitive and computational neurosciences, focused on the application of advanced computer-based analyses in the field of the clinical neurosciences and pattern recognition. He has been awarded several grants and prizes, including the 2019 John Mitchell Crouch Fellowship by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS), the premier surgical research award of the RACS, thanks to which he has opened the Computational Neurosurgery Lab at Macquarie University.

  *   Title: The AI-Augmented Physician: A Clinical Neuroscience Perspective
  *   Where: Room 3.610, Level 3, Hearing Hub Building, Macquarie University
  *   When: Tuesday April 9, 2019
  *   Time: 2-3pm
  *   RSVP: Kirk Olsen (kirk.olsen at mq.edu.au<mailto:kirk.olsen at mq.edu.au>)
  *   Abstract: The scope of this talk is to shine light on the state of the art of computational modelling in the clinical neurosciences. While it seems clear that AI could assist the natural intelligence (NI) of experts to improve diagnosis and treatment of several diseases, it is not yet clear how to integrate AI to improve diagnostic decision-making. The underlying fear of a dystopic challenge where AI is pitted against NI can be overcome by viewing AI as a means to create an augmented physician, wherein experts’ NI is augmented by AI (which recursively learns from NI’s experience and expertise), shifting from a human-vs-machine to a human-AND-machine paradigm. The objectives of the talk are to:
     *   Provide a heuristic approach on how clinicians can benefit from the application of computational modelling into the neurosciences;
     *   Analyze clinical data with the aim to find new diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic biomarkers;
     *   Trigger new ideas and brainstorming with the aim to push the boundaries of computer-aided neuro-medicine.
