  • Talk Title: Brains for Brains: The Role of AI/ML Guided Clinical Decision Support in Neurology
    Speaker Biography: Dr. Slater serves as the Chief Medical Officer for Alliance Family of Companies. Dr. Slater has worked in the field of epilepsy for more than 27 years. He served as the Director of the Texas Comprehensive Epilepsy Program from 2004 to 2017, growing the center from a single neurologist and neurosurgeon to one of the largest epilepsy surgery programs in the country. He has served as an investigator for numerous clinical trials of novel anticonvulsants and medical devices. His early research work focused on the potential for applying techniques of the developing field of artificial neural networks to classification problems in clinical neurophysiology. These studies demonstrated the ability of such networks to distinguish disease states with a level of discrimination higher than achieved through statistical or human visual analysis. While the architectures have evolved and now such analyses are commonplace, these were the first such studies of their kind. His most recent research has focused on changes to brain electrical activity related to drowsiness.
