Back in June 2019, NHS chief, Simon Stevens called on tech firms to help the health service become a world leader in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. The technology has the potential to revolutionize the patients’ experience, with the faster diagnosis of cancer being just one of the ways the tech can help.
At MediWeek 2020, the inaugural AI & Machine Learning Convention will be held, which will bring the latest AI and machine learning technologies to the largest medical event in the UK. Here are the top five reasons why you should attend the AI & Machine Learning Convention. One of the UK’s most forward-thinking events.
1. Unrivaled education stream
A big worry throughout the healthcare industry is how to continue professional development inline with the new technologies that are being implemented in their day-to-day work – all for a reasonable price. A ticket to attend the CPD accredited AI & Machine Learning Convention is completely free to register for, so it really is training support for a wide range of individuals throughout the sector.
The AI and Machine Learning Convention will host over 50 informative CPD accredited seminars from ground-breaking speakers such as Baroness Blackwood from the Department of Health and Social Care, who will cover the Government’s approach to AI and machine learning in health, Dr Sue Astley, Researcher at the University of Manchester, who will talk about deep learning for breast density assessment and risk prediction, and Professor Paul Leeson of the University of Oxford, who will discuss whether AI is about to revolutionize cardiovascular ultrasound diagnostics.
2. Market-leading exhibitors
With the NHS announcing its plan to integrate AI and machine learning technologies into the NHS in the near future, understanding what this technology can do and how to source it can be invaluable to healthcare organizations and professionals. There will be great examples of the technologies at the AI and Machine Learning Convention including breast cancer detection solutions and support systems for neurodegenerative diseases. Expect to see over 50 leading AI and machine learning businesses at the event including the likes of Medtech-zoo, Behold Ai, iCAD, Inc, MedInfomatics Ltd, DesAcc EMEA Ltd, Zebra Medical Vision and many more!
3. One ticket, six shows
