Exploring New Opportunities for Innovation in Healthcare Cork City

January 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Decision Support: Exploring New Opportunities for Innovation in Healthcare

Decision making in the modern healthcare system presents serious challenges: How AI can we ensure positive outcomes for patients? How do we maximize limited resources? Are there better ways to care for people? The questions cannot be easily answered without examining existing data.

Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) techniques can yield useful insights into existing and improved care processes. Hosted by Health Information Systems Research Centre (hisrc.com) at the Department of Business Information Systems, University College Cork in collaboration with OneHealthTech Ireland, this event will promote conversations to explore some possible paths leveraging ML/AI and modern decision support to enhance decision making in healthcare.
