Corey Clark Guest Lecture at UT Southwestern

Dr Clark presented “Capturing the Intrinsic Power of Video Games” at UT Southwestern Radiation Oncology Department today.


Gaming can, and should, be more than just entertainment. This seminar will talk about how combining human in the loop technologies and gaming experiences with machine learning are helping to empower communities of game players to use their entertainment hours for real purpose. The Human and Machine Intelligence (HuMIn) Game Lab at SMU combines games with machine learning and distributed computing to transform entertainment hours into tangible impact for research and medical treatments. Examples will be shown that apply Minecraft to drug discovery, Tower Defense games for identifying drusenoid in optical coherence tomography scans as well as new ways gamers can transfer knowledge and insight directly into machine learning models through gameplay.
