George Mastorakos is a healthcare professional, translational healthcare informaticist and biomimicry specialist. He helps build what lies at the crossroads between state-of-the-art artificial intelligence methods and optimal patient care. George has led and completed a number of healthcare-applied machine learning and natural language processing projects from advanced clinical decision support for cardiologists to patient portal message triaging algorithms. His special interest in biomimicry means he is constantly asking: “How do organisms that have been evolving for 3.8 billion years share and manipulate data in their environment? How might we develop AI in a smarter, more efficient, and more sustainable way by looking to nature?”

Explainable AI Builds Trust at the Clinician-Machine Interface
Domain Knowledge
Trust is at the center of all healthy relationships, including patient-clinician and clinician-machine ones. If trust is not at the foundation of the clinician-machine relationship, useful AI algorithms will not see the light of day. The way to build this trust is through AI healthcare teams showing patients how it works.

Securing Patient Records with Blockchain Technology
Domain Knowledge
The ubiquitous adoption of modern electronic health records has fostered the storage, management, and sharing of virtually all of an individual’s protected health information. This includes everything from a patient’s address to their heart rate variability during a morning run to X-ray images. However, without proper security measures, these capabilities are merely digital castles made of sand.
