This focused issue on “The State-of-Art Deep Learning Technology in Ophthalmology” is edited by Dr. Daniel Ting, from Singapore Eye Research Institute, National University of Singapore, Singapore and Dr. Haotian Lin, State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China.

Dr. Daniel Ting graduated as the SingHealth Residency Valedictorian in 2016, then started his vitreo-fellowship training as an Associate Consultant in the Singapore National Eye Centre. In 2017, he was chosen to be the 2017 US-ASEAN Fulbright Scholar, representing Singapore to visit Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Applied Physics Laboratory to deepen his understanding on the use of artificial intelligence, big data analytics and telemedicine in the field of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Haotian Lin received his medical doctor degree from Sun Yat-Sen University and has devoted his efforts to a career in ophthalmological research for more than 10 years. He built the first cloud platform of intelligent diagnosis and treatment of cataract in the world, and is the creator of the world’s first intelligently ophthalmic clinic in Guangzhou, which was selected as one of "the 11 major AI events affecting the global medical community" by IEEE Spectrum and was the only selected one completed by a Chinese team.
