Scientists from Poland visit MIT CSAIL

Before the holidays, scientists from the Scientific Academic Computer Network (NASK) – Konrad Ciecierski and Mateusz Koryciński – visited one of the most modern research units in the world: MIT Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab (MIT CSAIL), where each of them had the opportunity to present their scientific achievements. The papers met with great interest from the present academic group, representing the greatest authorities in their fields.

The stay in the USA began with a visit to the campus in Boston. It was an opportunity to get to know even better the structures of one of the leading scientific centers dealing with the development of ML and AI in the world, which is also a partner organization of NASK. At that time, Polish scientists could better get to know the scientists working there, whom they had previously known only from scientific publications and interviews.

During the Tech Talk, which took place at MIT CSAIL, Konrad Ciecierski, and Mateusz Koryciński presented their scientific achievements in the papers: “AI in Medicine, applications in Deep Brain Stimulation” and “HyTract: A Hybrid Method for Tractography In Preoperative Planning.” Among the meeting participants was Prof. Gilbert Strang, who was particularly interested in the role of wavelet transforms in the processing of signals recorded during DBS procedures.

“Meeting scientists from leading research centers has strengthened my belief that NASK also carries out unique and important projects,” said Mateusz Koryciński.

An essential point of the program was the meeting with Prof. Dina Katabi, who, in her research, deals with, among others, the detection of Parkinson’s disease and its degree of advancement based on passive and non-contact registration of the examined person’s breath. The scientists discussed the possibilities of detecting cyclical neuronal discharges in the basal ganglia using EEG or the analysis of signals recorded intraoperatively by microelectrodes.

The next day, NASK representatives took part in the “MathWorks Research Summit” conference, during which they presented presentations on ML/AI applications in deep brain stimulation operations and planning neurosurgical operations. Mike Michailidis hosted the meeting from MathWorks, and the participants were researchers developing the Medical Imaging Toolbox. Our scientists took advantage of the opportunity to get to know the developers of the software package and actively participated in the discussion on the directions of its further development. Vijay Iyer hosted the meeting from MathWorks. Our representatives met with the teams responsible for the DSP System Toolbox and Deep Learning Toolbox, as well as with Jeff Mather from the Medical Imaging Toolbox team and with David Escobar from the Cleveland Clinic, who analyzes LFP signals recorded during DBS operations.

– Such a trip lets you get acquainted with other scientists’ workshops, often known only from publications or interviews. Trips to world-class conferences abroad should be an indispensable part of scientific improvement at every stage of a researcher’s career, said Konrad Ciecierski.

The next day, during the MathWorks Research Summit, the director of NASK, Michał Karpowicz, gave a lecture entitled “From Cybersecurity to Neurosurgery.” He presented achievements in using AI mechanisms in cybersecurity and medicine during his speech.

– We create multidisciplinary teams that look at the most ambitious research topics from different perspectives. It allows us to see non-obvious and very effective universal solutions. We use the experience gained in one area in other areas. It is our great strength – summed up Michał Karpowicz.
