Artificial Intelligence and the Digital Transformation of Healthcare



During this one-day event, we will bring together some of the leading organizations to explore, at a business level, how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning is fundamentally changing healthcare. AI is not replacing the need for humans; instead, it is helping machines do what they do best – performing repetitive tasks, analyzing huge data sets, and handling routine cases – and in the process, freeing up humans to handle complex problems, exercise judgement, and resolve ambiguous situations. This kind of emerging symbiosis between man and machine is unlocking the digital transformation of the healthcare ecosystem. AI's current and future impact will enable the transformation of medical and healthcare research and accelerate the diffusion of biomedical knowledge into common clinical practice and improve healthcare outcomes.
