Calling all those interested in the potential of AI in healthcare!

On 24 September 2019, the Cancer Innovation Challenge, an initiative led by The Data Lab in collaboration with the Digital Health & Care Institute (DHI) and Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre (SMS), will be celebrating the outcomes of an exciting project funded through its funding competition to find innovative data science solutions to improve cancer care and outcomes in Scotland. The project involved Canon Medical Research Europe in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and its objective was to automate RECIST reporting in mesothelioma using deep learning AI.

To complement the celebration of the project’s achievements, the event will also offer an opportunity to discuss, share and explore the potential of AI in Healthcare involving input from Canon Medical Research Europe, iCAIRD and The Data Lab amongst others.

So if you work in the NHS and are interested to find out more about AI in healthcare, or you’re a company working with AI in healthcare, or if you’re an academic interested in the field, we would love for you to join us.

Tuesday 24 September 2019

The event is split into two sessions, 10.00-12.45 (project specific), 13.30-16.00 (AI in Healthcare). You can register for the whole day or specific sessions.
