Imagine and organize a research agenda for AI in Health
Improved prediction methods in AI and machine learning are increasingly enhancing the scientific and technological progress in life science, health and care. Moreover, the recently opened Center for Health Data in Stockholm presents a unique opportunity to leverage health data to improve the healthcare system, from prevention to diagnosis and treatment.
Within this backdrop, KTH’s research platforms on Digitalization and Life Science warmly welcomes you to a workshop on artificial intelligence and machine learning for life science, health and care. The goal is to bring together academia, industry and government to imagine and organize a research agenda for AI in Health, for Stockholm and Sweden.
