On-Demand Webinar: The Life-Changing Impact of AI in Healthcare


This webinar is for IT Leaders in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries looking to understand the impact of AI on their industries and how to overcome the ethical and efficiency challenges that come with its use

AI’s Influence on Healthcare

AI is transforming society, software, data, connectivity, cities, retail, security and even our health. According to Forbes, the market value of AI in the healthcare industry is predicted to reach 6.6 billion USD by 2021.

AI has a myriad of applications in the healthcare industry. Whether it’s being used to discover links between genetic codes, to power surgical robots or to maximize hospital efficiency, AI has played a crucial part in reinventing and reinvigorating the modern healthcare industry through software that can predict, comprehend, learn and act.

AI in healthcare is both an ethical and efficiency challenge. After all, AI has no bedside manner (yet) but can be amazing at handling large amounts of data to help connect the dots; to predict the spread of a disease, develop and recommend therapies and optimize the delivery of care.

From the Alexa skill Dr AI and other automated self-diagnosis tools and apps, to big data pattern detection and algorithms that aim to prolong human lifespan and curing infection and disease, today the topic is more important than ever. AI has been used in the healthcare industry for decades – for statistical modelling & simulation, prediction, analysis and reporting – in laboratories, clinical and medical settings.

In this webinar, our speakers shared inspiring examples of AI in healthcare during increasingly uncertain times. They discussed machine learning, natural language processing, rules-based expert systems and digital assistants, and robotics in care and operations.

Good, Bad or Ugly?

In every All Things AI edition, we open the floor to our audience and ask them to rate several AI use cases – are they good, bad or just plain ugly?

In this edition, we knew that each and every one of our examples was good so we left the discussion with the audience until the end. Voting will resume next time on All Things AI, but until then, you still have several AI use cases to enjoy!
