Generative AI in Ophthalmology

The field of ophthalmology has witnessed remarkable advancements in recent years, and the emergence of generative artificial intelligence (AI) techniques has further revolutionized research and clinical applications. This topic collection aims to explore the latest developments, challenges, and opportunities in the application of generative AI methods specifically tailored to ophthalmology. Scope and topics: British Journal of Ophthalmology invites researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to contribute their original research, reviews, or perspectives on various aspects of generative AI in ophthalmology. The topics of interest for this topic collection include, but are not limited to:
  • Generative models for retinal image analysis and interpretation
  • Synthetic data generation for ophthalmic imaging and diagnostics
  • Deep learning approaches for ophthalmic image generation and augmentation
  • Adversarial learning and generative adversarial networks (GANs) in ophthalmology
  • Transfer learning and domain adaptation in generative AI for ophthalmology
  • Explainability and interpretability of generative AI models in ophthalmic applications
  • Clinical applications of generative AI in ophthalmology, such as disease diagnosis, prognosis, treatment planning and interactive question and answering
  • Ethical considerations and challenges in the use of generative AI in ophthalmology
Submission Guidelines: Prospective authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts adhering to the guidelines of British Journal of Ophthalmology. Please see the instructions for authors for submission requirements for each article type. Submissions should be made through the online submission system. When submitting your manuscript, please select the topic collection title "AI in Ophthalmology." All submissions will undergo a rigorous peer-review process, and accepted papers will be published in the themed issue of British Journal of Ophthalmology. The deadline for manuscript submission is 29th February 2024. For any inquiries regarding this topic collection, please contact the Guest Editors at bjo@bmj.com. We look forward to receiving your contributions and making this topic collection a comprehensive resource for the exploration and advancement of generative AI in ophthalmology.
