Artificial Intelligence (AI) is heralded as a disruptive technology with the potential to revolutionise many industries including health and social care.

While AI has the potential to deliver significant health benefits, it is clear that there are some significant practical challenges, as well as ethical and regulatory concerns associated with the use of AI in healthcare.

This conference will cut through the hype around AI. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from both early-stage and established companies implementing AI technologies in novel domains. We will also explore some of the ethical considerations around how this technology can impact the experience of patients accessing established care pathways.

Through multidisciplinary lectures and lively panel discussions, we will explore the latest developments in the application of AI technologies to healthcare.

We’re thrilled to welcome a faculty of renowned speakers including:

  • Dr Liz O’Riordan, Consultant Breast Surgeon, Author and Motivational Speaker
