7th September  2018

Join the audience at Curate Space, the Digital Innovation Festival Hub or watch on-demand.

A full day program of FREE events focusing on Digital Health has been curated as part of the DIF Hub program. Register for the specific sessions of interest, or make a day of it, and receive complimentary coworking and collaboration at the DIF Hub.

Sessions are recorded which will be made available on demand in coming days.

#DIFhub18 Morning T(ech) – Digital Health : Improving the lives of patients

Learn about new digital health technology innovations, meet the innovators, and hear about how they are striving to improve the lives of Australian patients. This session is lead by ANDHealth a national digital health initiative established by a consortium of commercial and government partners to facilitate and support the development & commercialisation of clinically validated digital health technologies across Australia. ANDHealth+ is Australia’s only industry-led, mid-stage accelerator, dedicated solely to digital health.

#DIFhub18 Lunch ‘n’ Learn – Wellness for Entrepreneurs in a Digital World

Being an entrepreneur is a stressful business, just ask them what keeps them up at night. There are many ways to manage stress and a booming number of wellness apps that help from meditation to remind us to stand up and drink water. Join us for a lunch ‘n’ learn session about how to support yourself along the entrepreneurial journey and set up for success. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. Oh, don’t they have an app for that too?

#DIFhub18 Deep Dive – Practical Deep Learning for Healthcare

Artificial intelligence and its practical toolset of machine learning have enormous potential for medical applications. I present two recent projects and extract learnings for hardware and software tools to build and deploy models. The two projects include fully unsupervised clustering for high-content microscopy images and retinal imaging for retinopathy screening. The lessons gleaned from these case studies help scope the dataset requirements, engineering economy, and application feasibility. Emerging from the case studies are a series of recommendations that may constitute best practices for industrial deep learning applied to disparate data sources and applications.

Curate Space is the Victorian Government’s Digital Innovation Festival Hub.

We are proud to be partnering with the Victorian Government to deliver a ten day program of events, for audiences in the venue and online via the live stream. We are also the home for the festival team, working from our Festivals and Events Industry Coworking Space.

#DIFHub18

The 2018 DIF Hub will host sessions over 10 days of the festival from Monday 28 August to Friday 7 September 10.00am – 7.30pm at Curate Space in the heart of the Melbourne CBD.

#DIFhub18 Deep Dive: Practical Deep Learning for Healthcare

Artificial intelligence and its practical toolset of machine learning have enormous potential for medical applications. A technical team working on such datasets may seek open source tools and quickly face a myriad of options. I present two recent projects and extract learnings for hardware and software tools to build and deploy models. The two projects include fully unsupervised clustering for high-content microscopy images and retinal imaging for retinopathy screening. Respectively, they investigate novel deep learning approaches for semantic segmentation and application-specific network architectures. Software tools surveyed and used in our projects include NVIDIA DIGITS, BVLC Caffe, NYU Torch7, and Google Tensorflow frameworks.

The lessons gleaned from these case studies help scope the dataset requirements, engineering economy, and application feasibility. Emerging from the case studies are a series of recommendations that may constitute best practices for industrial deep learning applied to disparate data sources and applications.
