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.

Planned workshop programme

The daylong workshop will open with keynote speeches from experts in the field, along with speakers from KTH, KI and Stockholm city. Thematic afternoon sessions will focus on topics such as

  • AI challenges and opportunities with Stockholm Health Data Center
  • Future of advanced AI supported imaging for life science research
  • AI and data science challenges in life science research
  • AI for health decision support
  • AI and modeling for epidemiology research 

with the goal of identifying challenges and opportunities, forming networks and efforts to address questions in these topics.
