Brief Bio: Mehdi Moradi is a research staff member and manager at IBM Almaden Research Center. Over the last five years, he has led a deep learning/machine learning team focusing on medical image analysis. He graduated from the School of Computing at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada, in 2008. After completing research fellowships at the University of British Columbia (2008-2011) and at Harvard Medical School (2011-2012), he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia as an assistant professor in 2012 and IBM Research in 2014. In his research, he addresses the difficulties of deep learning in data limited scenarios of medical imaging were datasets are small and annotations are expensive.
