The data-intensive practice of ophthalmology offers a potential research goldmine about vision pathways and the prevention and treatment of eye disease. However, this data and the ability to use it effectively are still out of reach to the average investigator. This on-demand conference provides early and mid-career clinicians, clinician-scientists and basic researchers with strategies to access and integrate these big clinical data sets.
The presentations include recordings of panel discussions, which:
- focus on data sources, including an introduction to big data sets from around the world and how to gain access. The strengths and challenges of working with a wide array of clinical data sets appropriate for vision research is discussed.
- dive into working with big data sets and includes sessions on special skills required, practical considerations about data privacy and how to set up and contribute to a clinical data registry.
- review the application of big data including artificial intelligence, machine learning models and real-world examples of analyses involving big data.
Each session was directed by leading experts in the field of big data in ophthalmology.
