Given that our team created an algorithm to classify lung adenocarcinoma subtypes and that I had the chance to present the data at the conference, I learned about the most recent advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning in digital pathology, a field in which I was particularly interested. The opportunity to share my study and get input from other attendees was one of the conference's high points for me. Hearing others' opinions and thoughts about my research as well as having the chance to discuss my results with other professionals in digital pathology were both tremendously helpful. My research has improved due to this experience, and I have fresh ideas for my future study. Networking with other industry experts was a crucial advantage of attending Pathology Visions 2022. These gatherings offer excellent opportunities for attendees to network, exchange ideas, and work together on new initiatives.
