  • Location Royal Society of Medicine

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is heralded as a disruptive technology with the potential to revolutionise many industries including health and social care. But as AI systems get better at sorting data and making predictions, the role of this technology alongside existing models of healthcare remains unclear. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear the latest updates from companies like DeepMind, Ada Health and BenevolentAI 

This event will feature academics, doctors and entrepreneurs at the forefront of AI and healthcare. 

Alongside exciting use-cases of AI in healthcare, the event will also explore the regulatory and ethical implications around implementing this technology into our health service, including a debate on the likely impact of AI in Primary Care.  

As the promise of AI, neural networks and deep learning algorithms grows ever larger, it can be hard to keep up with the pace of technology. This event is for anyone with a desire to better understand where these innovations can provide tangible benefits, and how they might be implemented safely, ethically and effectively.   

Topics include:  

  • The opportunities for AI in primary care 
  • The ethical and regulatory perspectives of AI in healthcare 
  • The use of AI in drug discovery  
  • The application of deep learning to breast cancer screening
