Past event: AI & Machine Learning for Clinical Trial and R&D Advancements Summit

Elevate clinical trial operations, healthcare outcomes, and supply chain implementation through AI

AI for Life Sciences

Artificial intelligence is being used by life science organizations to accelerate drug development and spur medical device innovation by through genomic profiling, recognizing a need for immediate clinical intervention, and by monitoring medication adherence. In this track, we will explore key machine learning and drug development insights for utilizing AI in clinical development.

AI for Healthcare

While applications, systems, and platforms have been developed to transform healthcare innovation and delivery, there is lacking narrative in AI's actual execution in healthcare organizations. In this track, healthcare and technology experts showcase AI applications to improve health outcomes, prevent diseases, streamline diagnoses, and much more.

Blockchain and Future Technologies

The mission of this track is to balance the practical discussions with forward-thinking conversation. Experts in blockchain-based systems, IoT, and other future technologies will provide insights into the technological advancements on the horizon and how life science and healthcare organizations can prepare their business and data.
