Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: We see an emerging era of potential explosive growth of AI applications in healthcare, but the implementation and access to AI is challenged by isolated data stores and the high degree of complexity of the available tools. Furthermore, deep learning requires lots of data to train and refine models which, in turn, complicates and burdens compute systems as well as data movement. This panel will discuss AI and machine learning systems requirements, and potential paths to overcoming the challenges of AI implementation.
