Session Level 2- Intermediate

Artificial Intelligence is transforming every aspect of society, leveraging the exponential growth of sensors, data and computing power around the world to enable machines to sense, comprehend, act and learn. AI has the potential to improve safety and efficiency, reduce cost, and unlock new capabilities across industries, and to transform every aspect of our daily lives. The health care field is no exception. According to recent reports, investment in health care applications of AI could exceed $10 billion in five years, and key clinical health AI applications can potentially create $150 billion in annual savings for the US healthcare economy by 2026. But the impact of AI on health will extend beyond the medical industry, driving fundamental changes not just in diagnosis and treatment, but also in our understanding of the role of lifestyle and behavior in preventing health problems. How will AI transform the way that we provide health care, and the skills and experience that health care professionals will need to meet the evolving expectations of consumers in an AI-driven world?
