Artificial Intelligence: A Game Changer in Health Care


Although AI is thought to be in its infancy, it is already changing the way we think about health care. Expectations are high and at the speed that it is moving it brings hope in many if not all of the approaches to health care.

Join these fantastic speakers from the Allen Institute Artificial Intelligence Incubator, KenSci, and CuraCloud as we explore the possibilities with those who are using this technology for patients, providers, payors, and researchers.

This is the kickoff to our 2018-19 season of events. We will give you, the audience an opportunity to announce your projects in progress or services that could be helpful to others.
