MedRACER'18 workshop at KR, leading AI conference

As part of the 16th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR 2018), Dr Kristijonas Cyras, a researcher on the ROAD2H team will be co-organising a workshop on computation methods to assist clinical conflict resolution titled "Reasoning with Ambiguous and Conflicting Evidence and Recommendations in Medicine". 

Medical reasoning is a process that often has to make decisions based on contradictory or incomplete data. Recent advancements in computational methods- including defeasible reasoning, computational argumentation, (various forms of) logic programming, ontological inference, machine-interpretable clinical pathways, decision support and recommendation systems, preference-based reasoning,  have allowed for these conflicts to be captured in a computer understandable format and provide support for the various parties involved in health care. 

The workshop aims to bring together experts and up-and-coming researchers from a wide range of fields covering the topics briefly mentioned above to promote new collaborations and sharing of knowledge for supporting decision-making in health care.
