Approaching the Promise of Artificial Intelligence & Big Data in Healthcare
Health systems, services and policy researchers are increasingly interested in the potential for AI and Big Data to address challenges ranging from complex societal problems to those relating to individual care.
For this reason, the Health Services, Systems & Policy Seminar Series at the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME), University of Toronto will focus this year on the potential and limitations of AI and Big Data to improve healthcare.
Canadian and international researchers and practitioners from an array of disciplines including computer science, decision sciences, predictive analytics, and bioinformatics will join us to discuss applications of AI and big data to issues ranging from genomics, radiology, public health and hospital scheduling to blood transfusion.
