Disruptive innovation: Artificial intelligence in oncology and medical radiations

28th May 2019

Artificial intelligence represents a disruptive innovation which will change the way we work and live. Significant change is already occurring within the healthcare space and particularly within the sphere of medical radiations. How are we are going to evolve and rise to the challenge of AI becoming a part of day-to-day workflows? What does the future hold for us…. My talk will cover the technology behind Deep Learning and its current applications including its role in the healthcare space. I will also discuss how we can change our practices to flourish in the age of AI.

Speaker: Dr Hari Kirupananther MBBS Hons.
