Research Interests

The long-term goal of Dr. Suzuki’s research is to develop and understand computational intelligence that learns, from data and examples, experts’ knowledge and skills in understanding images in order to make smart decisions. To approach his goal, he believes that the development of sophisticated machine-learning and image-analysis techniques, their theoretical backups, and an understanding of experts’ decision-making process and of the human visual system are essential. Areas of his interest include machine/data learning in biomedical imaging, computer-aided detection and diagnosis of lesions in biomedical images, and biomedical image processing and analysis, especially machine learning inspired by the human visual system for image processing and pattern recognition such as image-based machine learning and deep learning, and its applications in biomedicine.

Publications (see the Publications page for details)

Dr. Suzuki has published more than 300 scientific papers (including 110 peer-reviewed journal papers) in the fields of computer-aided diagnosis, medical image analysis, machine learning, neural networks, computer vision, image processing, and pattern recognition. He is inventor/co-inventor on approximately 30 patents (including 13 granted patents). His papers were cited more than 8,000 times by other researchers, and he has an h-index of 41 by Google Scholar. He is one of highly cited researchers in the computer-aided diagnosis field by Google Scholar.
