DCRI EventsEverything we do at the DCRI is based on collaboration and the sharing of knowledge. Our researchers and operational teams work closely with each other, with our colleagues from the wider world of Duke University and Duke Health, and with our peers and partners around the world. Upcoming events featuring our thought leadership and opportunities for collaboration are listed below. We hope you will join us.

Duke Machine Learning Summer School
June 17-21, 2019
9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Schiciano Auditorium, Durham, NC
The Duke Machine Summer Learning School (MLSS) will focus on the areas of machine learning that have made the biggest advances in utility over the last several years, including deep learning. The class will concentrate on methods that allow machine-learning algorithms to train effectively on massive datasets, i.e., "big data." Emphasis will be placed on the latest methods for image and video analysis, natural language processing, reinforcement learning, and data synthesis/modeling.
Cardiac Safety Research Consortium Think Tank
8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
FDA Great Room, Silver Spring, MD
The Cardiac Safety Research Consortium (CSRC) is hosting a think tank July 24 in Silver Spring, MD to discuss practical approaches to generating clinical evidence for the treatment of cardiogenic shock. The one-day event will feature speakers from industry, regulatory agencies, and academia, including six Duke faculty: Mitch Krucoff, Marc Samsky, Jacob Schroder, Magnus Ohman, Adam DeVore, and Sunil Rao.
