IBM Watson for Oncology: What is it exactly?


Watson is an IBM supercomputer named after Thomas J. Watson who led IBM into the computer era. It represents a fundamental shift in the paradigm of computing – moving from programmable systems which have been the mainstay for the last several decades to learning systems that keep getting smarter as they process more knowledge. IBM has a business unit dedicated to transforming healthcare into a quantifiable service where every bit of information is available. It is called Watson Health and offers services in Genomics, Drug Discovery, Oncology, Imaging etc. By using it, physicians only have to go through their personalized reports instead of reading through dozens of papers for every patient’s case.

IEEE Workshop on Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis 2012

Call for papers
Biomedical image analysis is a fast evolving field driven by the advancement of imaging modalities and high content screening techniques. Many clinical applications are also emerging that use biomedical image processing for decision support.  The workshop will bring together researchers in computer vision, medical imaging, computational biology, graphics and robotics communities interested in problems that involve mathematical modeling or analysis in biomedical images, which include emerging molecular and cellular images. 
Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
  •     2D/3D/4D Registration
  •     Biomedical Image Databases / Retrieval
  •     Biomedical Image Motion Analysis
  •     Biomedical Image Reconstruction Methods
