ADVANCE 2022: Human-Centric AI for Health


Healthcare systems and providers have historically been impeded by legacy IT systems and regulations that stunt innovation and change.  However, the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the sector to become more agile and embrace digital transformation to meet the demands faced by the healthcare ecosystem.  On 29th June, the SFI ADAPT Research Centre for AI-Driven Digital Content Technology headquartered in TCD will hold its annual ADVANCE event on Human-Centric Artificial Intelligence for Health. Data-driven decision making has become the foundation for reducing costs, enhancing operational efficiency, delivering better engagement, and improving health outcomes. Change is coming and ADAPT’s multidisciplinary research is supporting enterprises on their digital journeys. This event will have a panel of leading technical, clinical and industry experts who will delve into the promises and perils of AI in health.
