Job Description

Join us as we translate today's discoveries into tomorrow's medicine!

The primary goal of the Bright Lab is to develop algorithms and methods for detecting and correcting biases in machine-learning results, ensuring models deployed in the clinic treat all patients equally. One particular interest is extending AutoML methods and software, such as Aliro and TPOT, for the automated detection and correction of biases, thereby producing fair models for clinical application.
