AI in Healthcare Symposium

Friday, October 4th – 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Hershey Lodge and Convention Center

Several Penn State faculty are organizing a one-day symposium on Oct. 4 in Hershey to explore ways for College of Medicine faculty and practitioners to partner with machine learning/artificial intelligence researchers to improve healthcare practices. The faculty organizing this (led by Vasant Honavar from IST and Keith Cheng from the College of Medicine) would like to include as many data scientists and AI/ML researchers as possible, in an effort to broaden awareness about the challenges in implementing AI methods into everyday healthcare processes. At the event will be administrators from universities that are also exploring these challenges.
