Connecting The Dots: "What Role Will A.I. Play in our Helping Systems?"

What role will AI play in our helping systems and how can it be used to improve outcomes for individuals and families?  On the third episode of Connecting the Dots, we will be speaking with Dr. Olga Vsevolozhskaya, an Assistant Professor in the University of Kentucky’s Department of Biostatistics, about these issues.  We will explore her research into machine learning and how AI models routinely beat human based decision supports.  Please join us for what is sure to be an interesting discussion.

About Our Guest Speaker

Dr. Olga Vsevolozhskaya
Dr. Olga Vsevolozhskaya

Dr. Olga Vsevolozhskaya is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics. Prior to joining the faculty, she held a postdoctoral fellow position at Michigan State University, where she worked on statistical issues associated with the epidemiology of drug abuse and genetic susceptibility to human health conditions. Her research focused on the development of statistical methods for characterizing interactions between risk factors associated with transition to drug dependence and on statistical genetics approaches for finding heritable components of health-related human traits. Dr. Vsevolozhskaya’s work focuses on functional data analysis, which uses curves to summarize information over continuously varying variables, such as time or distance. The techniques for functional data analysis that she has been working with are applicable to a wide variety of studies and types of data, including those found in epigenetic and drug abuse research. 

About Connecting The Dots

Mr. Mark Lardner, LCSW-C, the Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for Innovation in Population Health at the University of Kentucky, is interested in hearing stories from people currently working to connect the dots in our helping systems; using their data to seamlessly move from the delivery of person-centered care based on individual aspirations to transformational system level outcomes.

This live video podcast will be an in-depth, and broadly accessible, exploration of innovative approaches for translating assessment data into meaningful metrics across the helping professions. 

Each month a different guest will share their insights on how to use data to better understand the transformational process through the use of aggregated data.  These interactive episodes will air the second Tuesday of each month and be archived with helpful resources on our IPH Center live website.  We hope you will join us on this journey to uncover how applied person-centered data is moving us closer to transformational systems that work for all people.
