In recent years, there have been significant new developments in the use of computational image techniques in medical and biomedical applications. These have been mainly driven by the proliferation of data driven methods, spearheaded by deep learning methodologies, as well as the development of health monitoring and self-assessment systems.
With a gradual acceptance of these methods in clinical practice, we are at a precipice of possibly very significant changes to the way medical care is delivered, with “intelligent machines” being more and more involved in the process. Their role is changing from merely being a tool operated by medical practitioners to being an autonomous agent, with which practitioners collaborate. However, because of the rapid progress, the current state-of-the-art is not always adequately communicated to medical and health professionals, reducing its possible impact. Furthermore, a significant part of this research is being done not at universities, but in the commercial sector.
Therefore, the workshop aims to be a meeting place between academics, practitioners and representatives of the commercial sector. The workshop organization reflects this aim, since the Programme Committee includes researchers, medical doctors, and members from industry.
ViMaBi is intended for academics, researches working in the commercial sector as well as clinical practitioners interested in biomedical image computing and machine learning. The format of the workshop is devised to encourage interactions between experts and colleagues (including research students) who may have just started working in this fast-paced field.
