Session Abstract – PMWC 2018 Silicon Valley

Session Synopsis: The field of AI and machine learning is undergoing explosive development and growth, yet the timing of impact in the area of health care and health management as a key element in the clinical care is still uncertain. How AI will influence our approaches to the management of complex diseases such as cancer, what elements of technologies will come into play, and how this be impacted in a regulated setting remains to be seen. Clearly, we will see many rewards with AI in the clinic, but we first must anticipate the hurdles along to way and devise solutions to overcome them.
