This two-day conference will look beyond the hype to get to the bottom of the real applications of AI & ML in healthcare and the considerations and challenges for use. The agenda will explore how clinicians and industry alike can leverage these emerging technologies to drive efficiencies, unlock opportunities for discovery and detection, enable greater accuracy and improve health outcomes. Critically, discussion will also delve into issues around privacy and data protection, patient and clinician trust in these emerging technologies, and navigating the regulatory landscape in Australia.
