The Impact of AI and IT Synergies on Healthcare and Biomedicine

Speaker:   Dr. Nikolaos Bourbakis, Wright State University
When:   October 12, 2018, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Where:   Engineering Building, Room 4201


In the last two decades the maturity of two major scientific events has significantly impacted the Academic and Industrial evolution. The first event is the wide acceptance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Applications domain. The second is the increased computational power of IT tools (Data Mining, Big Data) with application to very large scale demands. As a result of this evolution, singular methodologies have been replaced by Synergies of methodologies for robust solutions to complex and large scale problems. Thus, this talk will address how Synergies of AI and IT Methodologies may offer better solutions for problems on Healthcare & Biomedicine.
