Dr Dimitri Yellachich

Optometry Western Australia’s monthly metro CPD evening is sponsored by Novartis in September and is presented by Dr Dimitri Yellachich.

Dr Yellachich will talk on Artificial intelligence.  AI has become far more ubiquitous than many might think.  Despite this, peoples understanding and perception of the true capabilities of machine learning remain disparate from the truth.  Misconceptions ranging from the idea that general artificial intelligence is just around the corner and will replace most human beings to an under appreciation of the computational power currently possible, leave many people somewhat confused.  In addition the field is growing at an unprecedented pace.  In this presentation Dr Dimitri Yellachich will introduce some basic concepts behind AI and look some areas in ophthalmology that are being rapidly impacted.

3 CPD is available for attendance. Please register now to confirm your place.
