Presentation

Overview

Recently, synthetic data has enjoyed growing interest from the biomedical sector. Synthetic patient data helps in leveraging privacy issues. Augmenting datasets with synthetic records helps with increasing classification model training performance in the face of scarce health data and rare minority classes (e.g. rare diseases).

During this one-day workshop, organized by CHUV and SDSC, we will review available tools for synthetic data generation and use cases in the biomedical and pharmaceutical sectors.

Details

Target Audience

Experienced professionals, executives, and data scientists in the biomedical and pharmaceutical sectors wishing to acquire hands-on knowledge on synthetic data generation and usage.

As the workshop involves hands-on sessions, prior experience with the programming language Python is required. The workshop will be held in English.

Programme

Objectives

By the end of the day, participants will:

- Have a grasp of current available methods for synthetic tabular and image data generation.

- Have identified use cases and challenges of synthetic data in the biomedical and pharmaceutical sector.

- Have hands-on experience with generating synthetic data with python and evaluating its quality.
