Dr. Alexander Wong, a professor of systems design engineering, has teamed up with other researchers from the University of Waterloo, McGill University, and the National Research Council of Canada to develop a more trustworthy method to diagnose diseases such as COVID-19, pneumonia, and melanoma using artificial intelligence (AI) tools. 

The researchers created a system they’ve dubbed Trustworthy Deep Learning Framework for Medical Image Analysis (TRUDLMIA), which leverages the power of supervised and self-supervised AI learning that aims to pave the way for advancements in high-performing and trustworthy healthcare models. 

The much-anticipated REEM-C recently arrived on campus and has already started an extensive training program.

The humanoid robot is described as the slightly smaller and lighter brother of TALOS, the full-size black and purple robot that was welcomed with great Katja Mombaur and REEM-Cfanfare at Engineering 7 almost two years ago.
