Computer Vision Advisory Services

Frustrated by the never ending cycle of machine learning experiments?

  • Worried that there might be an existing tool or recent research already demonstrating something you’re developing from scratch?

  • Unable to hire computer vision experts with expertise in your domain?

  • Struggling to keep up with the rapidly advancing field?

  • Unsure whether you’re focusing on the best model types for your application?

Get to market faster with less wasted time on unsuccessful approaches

  • Clear priorities for your team

  • Know which projects to prioritize to meet your goals

  • No more debating which model types to pursue or going down rabbit holes evaluating each

  • Follow best practices for your unique challenges

Get access to computer vision insights from an experienced scientist/researcher when you need them

Here’s how it works:

We start with a kickoff workshop to identify your goals, challenges, and priorities. Throughout the duration of this Advisory service, I’ll be available to review progress, answer questions, and generally keep you on track.

Example topics from past clients:

  • Proper validation of models

  • Understanding domain shifts and improving model generalizability through data- and model-centric solutions

  • Modeling approaches for small datasets

  • Weakly supervised learning based on patient-level labels

  • Tailoring computer vision research advances to the challenges of pathology or remote sensing images

Don’t just take my word for it…

Heather interacts closely with our team and helps enormously in guiding our efforts toward the machine learning architectures that perform best for our system. Her deep understanding of the diverse range of ML architectures and capabilities allows us focus on the data preprocessing, data augmentation, and validation techniques that produce the most robust results given our unique data and challenges.

-- Alan Kersey, CytoVeris, President & CEO

Our team was fortunate to work with Heather on a short-term project, where she was a critical contributor to establishing a framework for future studies. She has an unusual ability to demystify, in plain language, new developments in computer science for a wide audience, and I am confident through her work she will influence many teams and help bring to reality the next set of tools to transform pathology.

-- Keith Wharton, Ultivue, VP Medical Director

Heather has accelerated the development of our machine learning projects by challenging the status quo and introducing the team to new approaches. She helped us get out of the echo chamber and brought an outside perspective with very relevant alternative approaches that would have taken a lot longer to do on our own.

-- Joe Sturonas, Ancera, VP of Systems Development

Pixel Scientia provides valuable insights for Gestalt's image analysis product development. Heather has deep understanding of digital pathology and machine learning and their application to whole slide images. Her in-depth review of the current state of the art research has enabled Gestalt to rapidly focus our machine learning efforts on approaches that are yielding value for our pathologists and their patients.

-- Brian Napora, Gestalt Diagnostics, VP of Sales & Product Management

Heather's knowledge of the current state of the art within the digital pathology field is second to none. Consultation on best practice approaches for deep learning model classification performance and insight into digital research perspectives were very beneficial. Discussions of prior art enabled our team to focus on novel research and refine our current AI methodologies for clinical research.

-- Jenny Fitzgerald, Deciphex, Director of Clinical Research & Operations
