AI IN HEALTH

CONFERENCE

AI, DATA, AND COMPUTING IN HEALTHCARE AND PUBLIC HEALTH

SAVE THE DATE!

SEPTEMBER 9-13, 2024 | HOUSTON, TX

 

ABOUT
AN OUTLOOK FOR THE NEXT DECADE IN
AI, MACHINE LEARNING, & HEALTH

Bridging the gap between artificial intelligence and real-world health outcomes, the AI in Health Conference isn’t just about what AI can do—it’s about what AI should do for patient care.

 

The AI in Health Conference is your opportunity to connect with and learn from researchers, engineers, clinicians, and entrepreneurs at the forefront of artificial intelligence in healthcare and public health. Brought to you by the Ken Kennedy Institute at Rice University, this program will address the current state of artificial intelligence in health and showcase a research-based outlook on the next 10 years. 

 

The AI in Health Conference will take place in Houston, home of the largest medical center in the world - the Texas Medical Center - which hosts 60+ member institutions that are visited by 10 million patients each year. The intersection of healthcare and artificial intelligence holds potential, unlike any other innovation the medical industry has seen before. Artificial intelligence’s ability to operate and automate tasks at heightened speed, efficiency, and accuracy has already made an impact on day-to-day hospital care and administrative functions.
