Towards more reproducible research in artificial intelligence for medicine

8/10/2018

Being able to reproduce the results obtained is a major challenge in biomedical research, and an essential stage in drawing lasting conclusions from them. Olivier Colliot and Stanley Durrleman's ARAMIS team is an Inria team (based at the ICM (Brain and Spine Institute), jointly with the CNRS, Inserm and Sorbonne University) that has developed a set of software tools enabling reproducibility in medical decision-making support system evaluation studies. The results are published in the journal Neuroimage.
