The goal of the NeurIPS 2019 Machine Learning for Health Workshop (ML4H) is to foster collaborations that meaningfully impact medicine by bringing together clinicians, health data experts, and machine learning researchers. Attendees at this workshop can also expect to broaden their network of collaborators to include clinicians and machine learning researchers who are focused on solving some of the most import problems in medicine and healthcare. The organizers of this proposal have successfully run NeurIPS workshops in the past and are well-equipped to run this year’s workshop should this proposal be accepted.
This year’s theme of “What makes machine learning in medicine different?” aims to elucidate the obstacles that make the development of machine learning models for healthcare uniquely challenging. To speak to this theme, we have received commitments to speak from some of the leading researchers and physicians in this area. Below is a list of confirmed speakers who have agreed to participate.
Luke Oakden-Raynor, MBBS (Adelaide)
Russ Altman, MD/PhD (Stanford)
Lilly Peng, MD/PhD (Google)
Daphne Koller, PhD (in sitro)
Jeff Dean, PhD (Google)
Attendees at the workshop will gain an appreciation for problems that are unique to the application of machine learning for healthcare and a better understanding of how machine learning techniques may be leveraged to solve important clinical problems. This year’s workshop builds on the last two NeurIPS ML4H workshops, which were both attended by more than 500 people each year, and helped form the foundations of an emerging research community.

Madalina Fiterau (CMU)
Irene Y Chen (MIT)
Irene is a PhD student at MIT focusing on applications on health care and fairness. She did her undergrad at Harvard where I studied applied math and computational engineering. Before starting at MIT, she worked for two years at Dropbox as a data scientist and machine learning engineer.
Sam Finlayson (Harvard Medical School)
Samuel Finlayson is a MD-PhD Candidate studying jointly at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research focuses on developing machine learning methods for precision medicine. Current applications focus on neurological diseases and extend techniques from computer vision, natural language processing, and single-cell genomics. Previously, he studied Biomedical Informatics at Stanford University.
