One of AIMed largest events of the year, AIMed Europe 2019 will take place at Shoreditch Town Hall, London between 17 and 19 September. This year’s theme is “Be part of the Revolution: Transforming healthcare with AI”. It reflects AIMed’s continuous effort to gather multi-disciplinary groups of medical professionals, technology experts, healthcare leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, patients, and their families, who are passionate about artificial intelligence (AI) and related new technologies and are devoted to transform medicine from evidence-based to intelligence-based.
