Spyridon Bakas


Spyridon Bakas talk will revolve around his most recent focus on federated learning (FL), where he co-authored what seems to be the first study on FL in medicine, and has been funded by the Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop the federated tumor segmentation (FeTS - platform, in collaboration with Intel, that enables the first-ever real-world consortium of 43 international institutions (so far) looking into FL for tumor segmentation, starting with brain tumors.
