Speaker Bios

Join us for this half-day, in-person event (with remote option) that will focus on the transformative impact artificial intelligence and machine learning are having on precision healthcare. Attendees will hear from thought leaders, researchers, and practitioners who will guide the conversation from big picture concepts (what is the vision of AI in healthcare and how do we realize it?), to the importance of applying new research tools responsibly and inclusively, and to the need for integrating new methods and inclusivity considerations into training for clinicians, researchers, and other learners.

You may choose to attend in person or virtually.

  • The number of in-person attendees will be limited to allow social distancing, in observance of public health practices. In addition, no food or beverages will be served. Masks are required for all attendees. All in-person attendees must check in at the Building 18 entrance with the ResponsiBLUE health app. In compliance with university policies, no food will be served. We apologize for any inconvenience.
  • Prior to the event, log-in information will be shared with those who register for the webcast. Please watch your email for more information.

We hope you’ll join us!
