AI Researcher & Entrepreneur

Hi there! My name is Shalev Lifshitz and I am a 16 year old Canadian, excited about recent innovations and how I can be a part of the future! With an interest in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, I am currently working at the SickKids Goldenberg Lab, taking multiple undergraduate courses, and reading an amazing textbook on Deep Learning! I hope you enjoy my Newsletter!

Speaking at KPMG Executive Look
I had an great time speaking at KMPG Executive Look, KMPG’s largest university student conference! I spoke about the Design Thinking process and how we can leverage this type of thinking to create innovative solutions to some of the worlds most important problems. Afterwards, I guided the students through a case study in which they had to use the Design Thinking process in order to solve one of KPMG’s most important problems: How do we increase employee participation in the community? It was wonderful meeting all of the talented students who attended the conference from across Canada! Special thank you to the Shiloh, Arundel, Victoria and the KMPG impact team for hosting such an amazing event!
AI in Digital Pathology
My research at the Goldenberg Lab has lead me into the the world of AI in Digital Pathology. I have been developing an AI and Computer Vision system that automatically diagnoses Ciliopathy (a genetic disorder) using cell microscopy images and retrieves important information that pathologists need in order to diagnose the disorder themselves. Currently, researchers and pathologists working with Ciliopathy need to manually count, measure and further analyze microscopy images in order to diagnose the disorder. The system I am building will do all of that laborious work in just a few seconds, saving pathologists and researchers hours of manual labor and allowing them to focus on more important tasks.
