Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Pathology

Moderator: Thomas Durant, MD, Yale School of Medicine
Talk 1:  Machine Learning 101 - David McClintock, MD, PhD, Michigan Medicine
Talk 2 :  Artificial Intelligence in Pathology Practice - Toby Cornish, MD, PhD, University of Colorado School of Medicine


  1. Understand the fundamentals of machine learning (ML), including supervised, unsupervised, and deep learning
  2. Recognize how ML is used within artificial intelligence AI), including how to apply AI and ML to the practice of pathology
  3. Recognize the technical, operational, cost, and human barriers affecting the adoption of AI & ML within Anatomic Pathology and how to  overcome/mitigate them
