Doctors vs machines: Can Artificial Intelligence solve the healthcare crisis?

Popis udalosti


Artificial Intelligence (AI) influences which films you watch on Netflix or it can analyze the speed of movement of traffic. Some say it will advance the humanity, others say it will doom it. Hype and exaggeration surround everything around AI so it’s important to come to terms with what potential possibilities and dangers it poses.

AI in healthcare; from creating cutting-edge medical devices, via reducing misdiagnosis to taking better care of patients; means that medicine is reaching a turning point thanks to AI.

But let’s not jump on the bandwagon blindly. It’s essential to answer questions such as:
– What are the successful use cases for AI in healthcare?
– How can AI help address the sector’s most pressing challenges?
– How far would we be prepared to go?
– What security issues need to be resolved?
– How can we ensure that AI use in healthcare is done ethically and sustainably?
– Overall, is AI the next frontier in healthcare?

All of these questions will be touched upon by field experts in this panel discussion.
