Vishnu Rachakonda is a Machine Learning engineer at Tesseract Health, a 4Catalyzer company focused on retinal imaging. In this role, he builds machine learning models for clinical workflow augmentation and diagnostics in on-device and cloud use cases.
Outside of work, he is the operations lead for the ML-Ops Community, a 3500-person online hub of ML-Ops practitioners and enthusiasts, and co-hosts the ML-Ops Coffee Sessions podcast.
In this episode, Vishnu starts off narrating his day to day as an ML engineer in a Healthcare startup. We then delve into what's going well for AI in Healthcare. The realist in Vishnu explains what's not going well with AI in Healthcare with emphasis on whether AI is helping to bridge the clinical gap in knowledge.
The focus then shifts to novel geographies and how solutions to local healthcare problems would be best sourced locally from homegrown companies rather than come from big pharma or big tech. Given Vishnu's passionate engagement with ML-Ops, we discuss how this field and community is maturing.
Vishnu then answers interesting questions posed by the audience.
