AIMed aims to transform Australian health care with AI

The AIMed series of global summits aims to bring together clinicians, hospital leaders and technology experts to kickstart a revolution in health care. The two-day event in Sydney from 12–13 November 2019 will showcase the transformative impact that AI-inspired technology is having on health care, providing a clinician-designed platform to discuss the latest developments and facilitate new ideas and partnerships.

Attendees will meet and hear from global and Australian speakers as they cover topics including machine learning and all aspects of AI, such as augmented and virtual reality, blockchain and cybersecurity, cloud AI, and Internet of Things and Everything (IoT and IoE).

The event will include a series of workshops covering AI in medicine, AI in medical imaging, and applications and challenges for AI in health.

Sessions include:

  • Machine learning in medicine, evaluating the latest practical applications, successes and roadblocks or implementing AI and machine learning in medicine.
  • An overview of the latest innovation in AI and data science in Australia, featuring clinicians that have moved on from research to practical case studies.
  • Panel discussion: Are we ready for AI — exploring the complex themes of ethics, data and safety.
  • AI in primary health care: Evaluating the perceptions, issues and challenges.
  • Subspecialty highlights of AI applications: bringing the algorithm and data science to life — putting the patient at the heart.
  • Panel session: What’s next for AI in Australia?

Highlighted speakers include:

  • Dr Mark Simpson, Chief Clinical Information Officer Executive Director, Clinical Engagement and Patient Safety, eHealth NSW
  • Dr Zoran Bolevich, Chief Executive and Chief Information Officer, eHealth NSW
  • Dr Martin Than, Director of Research, Christchurch Hospital Emergency Department
  • Dr Anthony Chang, Founder AIMed, Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer Children’s Hospital of Orange County

Shark Tank finalist pitches and voting will take place on Day One. Four finalists will pitch their solution and the winner will be chosen by the audience and a judging panel of clinicians. The winner will be announced at the end of Day Two.

“AIMed has been yearning to be in Australia, as some of the world’s best minds in informatics and intelligence in biomedicine are in that region,” said Dr Anthony Chang.

“In order to be excellent at AI in medicine and health care, we need to learn about each country’s health system, AI landscape, and how they solve problems using AI. We very much look forward to this exciting opportunity to learn from each other.”
