How Genomics And Artificial Intelligence Are Enabling Precision Medicine
Genomic medicine’s growth is transforming healthcare, delivering precision diagnoses and tar-geted therapies. Artificial intelligence approaches are needed to help clinicians cope with the rapidly increasing volumes of genomic data. This session will focus on how AI can be integrated in clinical genome interpretation, significantly increasing scale and while reducing costs and avoiding black-box approaches.
