Artificial intelligence has been around since the 1950s. So why does it seem like it's only now that its cropping up everywhere. From driving our cars, to recognising our faces, guessing our sexuality, to diagnosing our diseases or just simply chatting with us, it seems like everywhere we look computers are running more and more of the world around us.
In healthcare, we have seen an astounding level of hype surrounding the use of AI in image recognition, personalised treatment, form filling in and diagnostic technologies. But what actually is artificial intelligence? How does it work? what can it do? Is it all just hype or should I be worried about my job security? And if its been around so long, why can't Siri do my admin yet?
If you are interested in a topic that will come to fundamentally change the face of healthcare and it's roll in society and want to learn more about how it works, its applications and shortcomings. Then take an evening at the JR this October to listen, speak and discuss with pioneering researchers and individuals working with AI in healthcare. Bring your selves, your curiosity and your questions for an evening of talks and interactive sessions all about artificial intelligence, innovation and healthcare.
