The presentation will focus on artificial intelligence and leveraging emerging technologies in support of pathologists.

Recent advances in AI demonstrate promise in delivering expert-level, automated algorithms to assist pathologists.

Dr. Keith Kaplan, Corista Chief Medical Officer, and Eric Wirch, Corista Chief Technology Officer and Managing Director, will present at the Southeast Pathology Chairs & Administrators Conference this fall. Their presentation will focus on advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in surgical pathology and what AI means for the future of pathology practice.

Recent advances in AI demonstrate promise in delivering expert-level, automated algorithms to assist pathologists. The practical and productivity benefits of AI algorithms are in the detection and classification of features within images. Further, the presentation of AI analysis results, within an optimized workflow tool, realizes the utility of AI's promise. At a deeper level, automated screenings will prioritize images and regions in a study based on the Deep Learning’s classification score.
