Recent advances in Clinical Machine Learning



Professor David Clifton is Professor of Clinical Machine Learning and leads the Computational Health Informatics (CHI) Lab. He is OCC Fellow in AI & ML at Reuben College, a Research Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, Visiting Chair in AI for Health at the University of Manchester, and a Fellow of Fudan University, China. He studied Information Engineering at Oxford's Department of Engineering Science, supervised by Professor Lionel Tarassenko CBE. His research focuses on 'AI for healthcare’.

In 2018, the CHI Lab opened its second site, in Suzhou (China), with support from the Chinese government. In 2019, the Wellcome Trust's first "Flagship Centre" was announced, which joins CHI Lab to the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Vietnam, focused on AI for healthcare in resource-constrained settings.

He is a Grand Challenge awardee from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, which is an EPSRC Fellowship that provides long-term strategic support for nine "future leaders in healthcare." He was joint winner of the inaugural "Vice-Chancellor's Innovation Prize", which identifies the best interdisciplinary research across the entirety of the University of Oxford.
