Research Talk by Avi Goldfarb, University of Toronto, (CAN)


In our Research Seminar Series on March 28, 2019, Avi Goldfarb provided us with an assessment of prediction in decision-making, starting with an overview of AI enriched with amusing examples and quotes. He further presented his research on machine learning in healthcare aiming to answer whether machine learning, specifically deep learning, is an invention of a method of invention or a general-purpose technology. In particular, he investigates the job postings in healthcare to understand the role of machine learning in different fields. His early-stage results suggest that professionally run hospitals adapt machine learning more to R&D. We thank Avi for visiting us in Vienna and for sharing his expertise in predictive analytics. We are looking forward to hearing more about his very interesting and insightful study in the future. (Sila Ada)
