AI IN HEALTH

CONFERENCE

AI, DATA, AND COMPUTING IN HEALTHCARE AND PUBLIC HEALTH

NOV 7 WORKSHOP | NOV 8-9 CONFERENCE | HOUSTON, TX

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

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, the 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.

 

On November 7, join us for a free pre-conference workshop (separate registration) on RAD Genomics: Workshop on Reading, Assembling, Analyzing, & Designing Genomic Data. The conference will be held on November 8-9 with an exciting two days of keynote speakers, technical talks, an exhibit hall, networking receptions, and poster presentations. Sign up for our newsletter for program updates.
