Project Details

Our team aims to strengthen the capacity of big data analytics and artificial intelligence research and translation. We developed the first artificial intelligence automated diagnostic system based on deep learning technology for fundus camera based eye disease screening. Since then, we have developed projects that connect to dozens of hospitals and service providers in Australia, China and other Asia-Pacific countries. These projects have led to a collection of large datasets with high-throughput clinical data generated from electronic health records and imaging systems, presenting an exciting opportunity to conduct big data analysis integrated with machine learning to develop a clinical-based support systems; prediction models on prognosis; and artificial intelligence automated diagnostic systems.

Students with backgrounds in optometry and visual science, computer science and software engineering, or mathematics and statistics are welcome to apply. Students will be co-supervised by our collaborators from La Trobe University and Monash University.

This project is conducted in Centre for Eye Research Australia, Ophthalmic Epidemiology Group.
