Advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are moving at an unprecedented pace.

The accuracy and speed at which Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms can process language, images and big data are changing industries across the board. Even though healthcare is a data-focused industry, AI is still so much in its infancy that real post-pilot implementation is very sparse. Inherent to healthcare’s extremely complicated ecosystem, culture and regulation, healthcare lags behind other industries due to a number of reasons. Recently, Martijn van der Meulen, Internal Medicine doctor in training, published an advisory report about AI, to better understand challenges and review the current “state-of-the-art”.
His report is available as PDF and he will also present his findings on November 7, 2019. More information: https://www.radboudumc.nl/reshape/agenda/presentatiemartijnvandermeulen
