From 9 to 13 November : Virtual Event French American Innovation Day : AI Big data and Health

AI Big Data and Health

The application of Artificial Intelligence to health and health data management is one of the areas where the creation of start-ups and the emergence of new technological solutions is massively increasing, in the United States as in France, supported by renowned research institutions. The applications are multiple: aid in diagnosis, analysis of exams, in particular in imaging, contribution to the discovery of new therapeutic targets and molecules. This requires multidisciplinary approaches that involve strengthening the interfaces between experts with very different profiles: AI specialists, researchers in biology and health, doctors, regulators, businesses and patients. These increasingly concrete developments require a reflection in terms of ethics and regulation (legal responsibility, risks potential, influence of AI on the doctor, management of learning data, bias and discrimination). To address these different aspects, this event aims to bring together different experts through a virtual Science Fair open to the general public to discuss these topics within framework of a Franco-American cooperation.
