Deploying the Slide QC 2.0 network in HALO AI and HALO AP®

Date: 27 October 2022

Time: 8:00 – 9:00 PDT | 11:00 – 12:00 EDT | 16:00 – 17:00 CEST

Location: Webinar

Learn about the AI-powered Slide QC network, how to use it, and how to deploy it clinically in HALO AP®



In this 1-hour webinar, learn about the AI-powered Slide QC 2.0 network that was recently released in HALO AI 3.5 for automatically detecting and reporting artifacts in both research and clinical workflows. The Slide QC network can segment artifacts including tissue folds, air bubbles, out-of-focus regions, dust and pen marks. Learn how the network was developed and how it performs against external test sets. Furthermore, learn how to use it and how to add your own training regions to improve artifact detection in your individual workflows. By attending this webinar, you will also learn how you can deploy it in a clinical environment with HALO AP to improve lab efficiency. The Slide QC network can be used in a clinical environment both to flag slides with a high percentage of artifacts for review and to identify artifacts and exclude them from downstream image analysis.
