About

The Machine Learning for Health and Well-Being (MLwell) Lab is a research lab at the Bio-Medical Engineering department at Tel-Aviv University. Our vision is to create the technology to allow everyone and everywhere access to personalized medicine and precision psychology that is: (i) effective (ii) respects the biological, cultural and behavioral differences between people (iii) respects privacy and other ethical requirements (iv) affordable. Our mission is to improve the state in the art in machine learning algorithms for personalized medicine and precision psychology.

New paper

The Automated Copywriter: Algorithmic Rephrasing of Health-Related Advertisements to Improve their Performance

Our paper was accepted for publication in The WebConference (WWW 2020). The paper describes techniques for improving public health advertisments in search advertising. We use deep learning techniques to “translate” existing ads into more effective ones.

Upcoming event

On Jan 27 we will participate the Y-Data meetup in Tel-Aviv presenting our work Privacy Preserving Machine Learning. In this talk we will present how cryptography can be combined with machine learning to provide privacy and security and allow cloud services to opperate on private and sensitive data such as medical and financial data.
