In conversation with:

Dr. Frances Onyimba, PS'12


Artificial intelligence, or the use of machine-learning algorithms and deep learning software to mimic human cognition or rationality, has become the backbone for many of our daily activities. Now, the application of artificial intelligence (AI) for the analysis of healthcare data is on the rise, especially within the areas of precision medicine, diagnostics, and patient monitoring. These technologies have the potential to revolutionize patient care and disrupt the processes of healthcare organizations. But what can we expect as these technologies are implemented into the fields of Healthcare and Medicine, which have been rooted in human touch? 

In this discussion, Dr. Austin Chiang, Chief Medical Officer of Medtronic Gastroenterology, the first company to release AI software for colonoscopy, and Columbia University’s Professor Andrew Laine, who studies the mathematical analysis of computer-aided diagnosis, explore the state of the field, ethical considerations/pitfalls, and the impact on patient care.

Time will be allocated for Q&A
