Deep Learning Medicine

Mission Statement

At Voxel Rx we are developing the next generation of deep learning tools to better understand Alzheimer's Disease. Through this understanding, we aim to discover biomarkers for the diagnosis and early detection of neurological dysfunction so that treatment and intervention protocols can be established in this decade. Exponential problems require ideas that scale. Our tools leverage the latest cloud technologies including distributed GPU processing, as well as unsupervised feature learning and hierarchical forms of representation, that are capable of learning the discriminative, latent structure in data that is potentially unavailable to human physicians.


Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is becoming increasingly prevalent in a society where we live longer than before with estimates of 130+ million worldwide affected by this one neurodegenerative disease alone. AD not only impacts those inflicted by the disease, but also the loved ones surrounding them. The problem is that we still don't understand the disease and therefore the early detection of AD onset is not possible for intervention before the disease progresses too far.


Our Solution

Our solution to this problem is to develop deep learning algorithms that can discover the latent structure in the neuroimaging data that can allow us to diagnose and detect the early onset of AD. More specifically, we use a combination of unsupervised and supervised learning techniques in deep neural networks to learn diagnostic biomarkers and transform volumetric sMRI data into actionable feedback.


Exponential Technologies

The solution we provide leverages exponential trends in hardware development of Graphical Processing Units for training and implementing neural networks, increasing neuroimaging resolutions and screening ubiquity to build more complex and generalizable models, and basic research on deep learning that continues to push the state of the art.


AI for EHR

Many existing health records are still physical copies and need to be transferred to electronic health records to keep up with the pace of health care. We are developing machine learning solutions to transfer scanned images of documents to text with labels so that they can be stored as EHR. With this transition, massive data mining can be performed for classifying patient types, predicting patient ailments and predicting intervention outcomes.


William Hahn

William Edward Hahn co-founded the Machine Perception and Cognitive Robotics Laboratory in 2014 with the purpose of building a team of creative scientists, programmers, and engineers to research perception, computation, and robotics. His PhD thesis explores the intersection of computational neuroscience, non-linear signal processing, and computer vision.
