AI For Good: Making sense of big data and high tech to Cure What Ails Us

2:15 PM - 3:15 PM (EDT), Monday, June 5, 2023 ・ Session Room 253ABC
Are you experiencing AI vertigo? The dizzying array of things AI can seemingly do--good, great, and worrisome—has the world of healthcare both excited and overwhelmed. Join Cure and expert speakers for a BIO super session that will explain how we can optimally leverage the breathtaking advances of AI and other advanced technologies.
Can ChaptGPT go beyond the writing of school essays and emails to take on truly tough challenges in healthcare - like predicting Alzheimer’s, providing early warning systems for pandemics, and curing cancer?
We will start with futurist Daniel Kraft, MD taking us on a whirlwind tour of current and future health technologies. These include the creation of a “digital twin” - a physiological computer profile of “you”—that can use advanced testing and monitoring to predict your healthcare future, and hopefully to mitigate or prevent disease. A panel of experts will then showcase “here and now” examples of how AI is already being used to make sense of big data to speed up drug discovery and reduce costs; integrating new technologies like cell and gene therapies; advancing scanning technologies; and other new tech to better detect, diagnose, and treat cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease, and much more.
Join us for this glimpse into the future and the announcement of a new initiative to answer questions on how to use AI for good.
