Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley

Session Synopsis: AI methods promise to revolutionize the way we approach medicine, by building and training models that make accurate predictions. But the application of AI in actual biomedical contexts comes with distinct challenges. This session features speakers in the forefront of real-life AI applications, who will discuss challenges such as how to reach an interpretable/explainable AI model and how to apply AI in a regulated context.
