    Abstract: Sepsis is a major cause of mortality in intensive care units around the world. If recognized early, it can often be treated successfully, but early prediction of sepsis is an extremely difficult task in clinical practice. The data wealth from intensive care units that is increasingly becoming available for research now allows to study this problem of predicting sepsis using machine learning and data mining approaches. In this talk, I will describe our efforts towards data-driven early recognition of sepsis and the related problem of antibiotic resistance prediction.

    Speaker: Karsten Borgwardt is Director of the Department of Machine Learning and Systems Biology at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany since February 2023. His work won several awards, including the 1 million Euro Krupp Award for Young Professors in 2013 and a Starting Grant 2014 from the ERC-backup scheme of the Swiss National Science Foundation. Prof. Borgwardt has been leading large national and international research consortia, including the “Personalized Swiss Sepsis Study” (2018-2023) and the subsequent National Data Stream on infection-related outcomes in Swiss ICUs (2022-2023), and two Marie Curie Innovative Training Networks on Machine Learning in Medicine (2013-2016 and 2019-2022).
