10:30 AM KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Embracing the Transformative Power of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare to Augment you in your Role
Fears about Artificial Intelligence (AI) eradicating humanity go hand-in-hand with exaggerated statements about AI coming for the jobs of medical professionals. The fears around AI are understandable as so few of us actually understand how the technology works down to the detail. And what we don’t understand, we tend to reject. But it is important to understand that the innovation is not here to replace us; yet those who use AI will replace those who don’t. This session will cover:
- Why you need to be open-minded and familiarise with the concept of using AI in everyday life
- Appreciate how AI can and will be used in healthcare from spreadsheets to intuitive robotics, and what does the near-future hold?
- Data is the lifeblood of AI – understand how big data is empowering AI and machine learning, deriving insights to help clinicians optimise operations, drive innovation, and deliver value
- AI can be useful in population health experiments based on aggregated sensor data
