2:00 - Talk with James Zou (GDC 6.302)
  • Title: Biomedicine in the Age of Generative AI
  • Abstract: This talk will explore how we can develop and use generative AI to help researchers, clinicians, and patients. I will first discuss how we use AI to generate recipes for making and validating new drugs. Then I will present how we developed visual-language AI to help clinicians interpret histology images. Finally, I will discuss how we use large language models (LLM) to simplify medical forms and improve informed consent for patients. I will also discuss perspectives on what’s on the new horizon for generative AI.   
  • Speaker Bio: James Zou is an associate professor of Biomedical Data Science, CS and EE at Stanford University. He is also the faculty director of Stanford AI4Health. He works on both improving the foundations of ML–-by making models more trustworthy and reliable–-as well as in-depth scientific and clinical applications. Many of his innovations are widely used in tech and biotech industries.  He has received a Sloan Fellowship, an NSF CAREER Award, two Chan-Zuckerberg Investigator Awards, a Top Ten Clinical Achievement Award, several best paper awards, and faculty awards from Google, Amazon, Tencent and Adobe.
