Artificial Intelligence for Good
July 11, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Intellectual Ventures Laboratory and Global Good are focusing on ways to use Artificial Intelligence to address common healthcare infrastructure problems in low and middle income countries where a lack of trained medical professionals and hospital infrastructure are the cause of most poor health outcomes.
They are working to develop AI-based diagnostic aids and decision support systems. These will allow healthcare workers with a few weeks of systems training to make better decisions in critical situations.
Guest Speaker Benjamin Wilson, Director of the Center for Intelligent Devices at Intellectual Ventures Laboratory will talk about the work he is doing in the area of AI and its applications for global health and global development.
