Welcome to the first Australian congress of the Society for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, Surgery and Healthcare
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a disruptive technology that is revolutionising medicine, surgery, and healthcare. We welcome computer engineers, data scientists, clinicians, surgeons, public health officials, industry and government to convene and explore the frontiers of this exciting new field.
In our packed one-day program we will explore the technical aspects of AI in healthcare and discover cutting-edge real-world clinical applications. Our Faculty consists of leading innovators whose knowledge and insights will appeal to experienced researchers, novices entering the field, and interested observers alike.
The conference will be held at Westmead Hospital.
We look forward to the pleasure of your company in Sydney, New South Wales on March 9, 2019.
