Chen Sagiv: Deep Learning, Digital Pathology and Explainable AI (XAI) | The AI Watershed Podcast #1

“We provide a platform for our customers [pathologists and biologist researchers] to bring their expertise and develop their own algorithms.”

Chen Sagiv is a multi-faceted ‘do-er’ in Israel’s AI startup ecosystem. Holding a PhD from Tel Aviv University in Applied Mathematics, ’95, she and her husband Nizan founded a deep learning consultancy (Sagivtech) specialized in image processing, computer vision and GPU Computing, servicing clients like Google’s Advanced Technology and Products (ATAP) group. In 2018, she co-founded alongside Nizan and Jacob Gildenblat a new startup,, attempting to boost pathologists’ work in reviewing digital slides for research and clinical analysis with the power of Deep Learning. All the while, Chen and her team organize the country’s most prestigious AI conference, IMVC (Israel Machine Vision Conference).
