Medica AI - The Conference

16 de Julho de 2024

Getting Doctors and Technologists to Talk About Artificial Intelligence

On the occasion of the Artificial Intelligence Appreciation Day, a conference will be held at the Champalimaud Foundation aimed at bridging the gap between AI innovation and its implementation in medical practice.

The goal of the MEDICA AI - The Conference, which will take place on July 16 at the Champalimaud Foundation (FC), is to familiarise healthcare professionals, with the latest AI tools so that they can apply them in their daily practice for the benefit of patients.

The event is organised by the Digital Surgery Lab, a multidisciplinary team led by surgeon Pedro Gouveia and integrated within the Breast Unit of the Champalimaud Foundation.

In general, at AI-related events, technologists always speak with great enthusiasm about the democratisation of AI tools, which can be used in a wide range of industries. However, this message does not translate as it should to the healthcare sector, which is a market with completely different regulations from other industries, where mistakes can severely impact people’s health and well-being.

We invite all healthcare professionals, researchers, the academic community, investors, and entrepreneurs to take part in this conversation.
