DHR-ICMR Sponsored Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Medical and Healthcare Applications 2018, Kongu Engineering College, Erode, Tamil Nadu, 24-29th December 2018

Event Details:


Artificial intelligence (AI) aims to mimic human cognitive functions. It is bringing a paradigm shift to healthcare, powered by increasing availability of healthcare data and rapid progress of analytics techniques. In this workshop we covers the current status of AI applications in healthcare and discuss its future. AI can be applied to various types of healthcare data (structured and unstructured). Popular AI techniques include machine learning methods for structured data, such as the classical support vector machine and neural network, and the modern deep learning, as well as natural language processing for unstructured data. Major disease areas that use AI tools include cancer, neurology and cardiology. We then discuss in more details the AI applications in stroke, in the three major areas of early detection and diagnosis, treatment, as well as outcome prediction and prognosis evaluation. We conclude with discussion about pioneer AI systems, such as IBM Watson, and hurdles for real-life deployment of AI.
The Workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers, enterprises and developers to share and discuss advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence applied to medicine and health care. The workshop covers theoretical and practical aspects as well as technologies and systems.
