Jimmy Liu, Chinese Academy of Science, China; Singapore National Eye Research Institute, Singapore
Prof. Jimmy Liu Jiang joined Chinese Academy of Sciences in March 2016 through the China “Thousand Talent Program”. He graduated from the University of Science and Technology of China with a computer engineering bachelor degree, and obtained his Master and Ph.D degrees from the National University of Singapore majoring in Computer Science.Jimmy is currently holding the position of an Honorary Professor in Dundee University and is an adjunct principle research scientist in the Singapore National Eye Research Institute. Jimmy has served many years in IEEE EMBS (Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society) society, and was the 2014 chairman of the IEEE EMBS society of Singapore.
Jimmy has spent 27 years in Singapore before 2016. Jimmy
established the Intelligent Medical Imaging Program (iMED), which was once the
largest ocular imaging research team in the world, in A*STAR (Agency for
Science, Technology and Research) Singapore.
Ever since joining the Chinese Academy of Sciences, he put in much time and effort helping to establish a new institute focusing on biomedical Engineering in Ningbo with support from government and Chinese Academy of Sciences. In June 2016, he established an international joint lab “Sino-US Eye-Brain joint research lab” with North Carolina University United States to conduct eye and brain diseases diagnosis research; in August 2016, he established a joint lab with Electronics University of China to conduct big medical image data analytics. In Feb 2017, he signed a MOU with Singapore Eye Research Institute to jointly conduct ocular imaging research, and in April 2017, he signed an agreement with Singapore National Health Group in Ningbo to jointly conduct medical technology research as well as explore translational and clinical research in China and Singapore. Recently, in May 2017, Jimmy established a new joint laboratory with world leading ophthalmological equipment manufacture TOPCON Inc. in China focusing on new areas such as advanced ocular medical equipment manufacturing and Artificial Intelligence based Chinese “big” medical image and data research.
Title: Ocular Imaging Research and AI
Abstract: In the talk, Jimmy will update the ocular imaging research work in the past years. He will share his AI-based image processing work on various ocular imaging modalities on the following 4 areas: ocular disease screening, robot assisted eye micro-surgery, ocular biometrics, as well as ocular medical informatics using genome study. He will introduce the current issues, technologies and approaches in this inter-disciplinary research area.
