AI for Healthcare

Equity Conference  

April 12th, 2021 — 9am EDT

Virtual Conference

Our Mission

The potential of AI to bring equity in healthcare has spurred significant research efforts across academia, industry and government.  Racial, gender and socio-economic disparities have traditionally afflicted healthcare systems in ways that are difficult to detect and quantify.  New AI technologies, however, provide a platform for change. By bringing together thought leaders in these fields, we will assess the current state-of-the-art work in this space, identify key areas of impact, and present machine learning techniques that support fairness, personalization and inclusiveness.  We will also discuss the regulatory and policy implications of such innovations.
