Abstract :

In this talk I will describe my work on using self supervised learning (SSL) for medical image analysis. In the absence of labeled data SSL has shown tremendous gains for many deep learning applications such as image classification and segmentation. I will discuss applications of SSL to medical image augmentation, stain normalization and registration of histopathology images. The results highlight the gains achieved in using SSL for medical image analysis tasks and the potential to achieve better performance than state of the art methods.
