Ken Kennedy Institute will host AI in Health Conference Nov. 7-9
Texas Medical Center event will focus on AI adoption, trends for coming decade
To showcase the state of artificial intelligence in health and help health care innovators forecast the coming decade of AI development in health, imaging, genomics and more, Rice University’s Ken Kennedy Institute is organizing and hosting the AI in Health Conference Nov. 7-9 at Rice’s BioScience Research Collaborative in the Texas Medical Center (TMC).
With more than 10 million patient engagements every year, Houston’s TMC is where collaborations between clinicians, researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs intersect to propel artificial intelligence and machine learning for next-generation health care.
Angela Wilkins, executive director of the institute, said the conference is an outgrowth of the institute’s popular AI and Data Science Conference.
“Last fall, there was overwhelming interest from participants to deeply explore specific aspects of the health landscape,” Wilkins said. “We decided to restructure into two conferences so we could hone in on artificial intelligence and machine learning in health.”
She said the AI in Health Conference program is designed to support health care innovators who are adopting advanced AI to improve care and optimize patient outcomes. It includes pre-conference workshops, networking, resource sharing, educational sessions and dynamic panel discussions, all designed for life science professionals.
“Artificial intelligence, data and computing have brought about a new revolution in health care,” Wilkins said. “Our goal is to bring as many stakeholders to the table as possible to speed up innovation and the adoption of new technology.”
Conference pre-registration is underway and prospective speakers may submit abstracts until Sept. 12.
