Dr. Fadila Zerka - Challenges and Opportunities of Big Data for Healthcare

Fadila Zerka is a Clinical Research Scientist at Median Technologies. Her research interests are centered around the application of distributed learning to preserve medical data privacy and facilitate the use of AI to build new innovative imaging biomarkers.


Big data has the potential to advance and facilitate clinical decision making for care providers. Data, however, is heterogenous and spread across different providers and cannot be easily shared due to patient privacy protection regulations. Various
standardization and novel learning techniques have been proposed to overcome the diversity of medical data and the limitations related to its access, such as transfer learning and the different forms of distributed learning.
