We are presenting a first and still preliminary schedule of the MIDOG challenge workshop. Congratulation to all accepted presenters! Please Note that all times are UTC! Links to the

Block 1: Introduction and Reference Approach, 14:00-15:20 UTC (16:00 – 17:20 CEST)

14:00-14:20 Welcome address and Introduction Marc Aubreville
14:20-15:05 Keynote: How to build trustworthy AI solutions

With the rise of Deep Learning technology and free availability of the required toolchains, developing machine learning (AI) algorithms has become more accessible than ever. In addition, performance of these algorithms is getting better and better, often straight out of the box. Is this sufficient to trust these AI systems enough for deployment in critical application areas as healthcare? What needs to be done to move from an academic proof-of-concept to a validated AI system?
