Translating Artificial Intelligence to the Clinic

9 november 2021 – VIB-UGent Center for Plan Systems Biology
study day
AI Research Flanders

Artificial intelligence has great potential for the clinical domain. At this workshop we connect researchers to clinicians.

At this event, we invite clinicians, biomedical researchers and people that are working within the environment of hospitals to a thematic day about translating artificial intelligence to the clinic.

Artificial intelligence has great potential for the clinical domain, and at this workshop we will connect researchers from the AI Flanders program to clinicians and biomedical researchers.
