    Brendon Lutnick published in Nature Machine Intelligence.
    Our work discussing a smart Human-Machine Collaboration to generate high quality large-scale annotations from digital histology images appeared in Nature Machine Intelligence.  The tool will allow pathologists to generate high quality large scale annotations per their definition in a rapid time, and the process will also help computer scientists to obtain large number of high quality data for training supervised algorithms.  A read-only version of the work is available here.  Video discussing part of the work is available here.  All the codes and images used for evaluation are made available for the community.

    University at Buffalo published a news article on our multi-disciplinary research work funded via Buffalo Blue Sky program.
    We received funding to computationally study the role of neutrophils in lupus nephritis, an autoimmune disease that can lead to kidney failure.  Buffalo Blue Sky funding mechanism brings researchers from different disciplines to form a team to test new ideas.  Other team member in this project is Michelle Kay (Assistant Professor, Oral Biology).

    We received funding to study the detection and quantification of the earliest measurable glomerular structural changes from renal biopsies of diabetic nephropathy patients, as well as identify patients at risk of renal failure, thus opening new windows to precision therapy.  We employ and study a variety of tools from modern and classical artificial intelligence methods.  A recent news article is available here.
