As mentioned from time and again, 2019 is an eventful year for AIMed as we are not only hosting our annual flagship meeting in Europe (17 – 19 September), Australia (12 – 13 November), and North America (11 – 14 December), but we are also focusing on sub-specialty meetings for an insight into different medical domains to find out more about what they are doing with artificial intelligence (AI) and related new technologies. AIMed Cardiology and Radiology were held respectively in Chicago, Illinois this June and in the coming week between 7 and 8 October, AIMed Surgery
AIMed Surgery aims to bring attendees out of the present robot-assisted surgery era into the many possible future where machines will not only help surgeons to better execute their tasks via minimally invasive procedure
Likewise, 21stcentury ICU is no longer about the provision of round the clock medical attention towards the sickest patients, but also turning the massive amount of data within the unit, into machine learning algorithms that will access the severity and predict patients’ likelihood of survival, readmission, or contracting with sepsis and other conditions.
Who will be speaking
Here are a few speakers and sessions
AIMed Surgery Session 1: Using AI to improve quality and patient safety
Date: 7 October 2019 (Monday) 09:00 – 10:00
Speaker: Dr. Piyush Mathur, Staff Anesthesiologist/ Intensivist, Quality Improvement Officer, Anesthesiology Institute, Cleveland Clinic.
As part of BrainX, a conglomerate set out to transform healthcare through AI and innovations, Dr. Mathur will be addressing the challenges of using machine learning in real-time analyses and actions. Often, the lack of data and the need to process collected data are hindering AI advancement, as such, can machine learning be a reliable tool to assist fellow physicians. Furthermore, the benefits of using robotics in microscopic surgery and quality control within an operating theatre remain unclear. How will the ergonomics of robots changed in the near future and if machine learning can be useful?
AIMed Surgery Session 3: Data
Date: 7 October 2019 (Monday) 13:00 – 14:00
Speakers: Dr. Ambooj Tiwari, Neuro-interventional Surgery & Vascular Neurology, Pacific Neuroscience Institute. David Schneider, Chief Engineer, Systems Imagination.
Stroke is a complex medical condition among individuals presented with vascular risks. Stroke prevention is often challenged by the lack of information to forewarn its onset, coupled with a knowledge in patients’ drug adherence and lifestyle,
AIMed ICU Session 4: Algorithms in perioperative care
Date: 8 October 2019 (Tuesday) 13:00 – 14:00
Speaker: Dr. Kamal Maheshwari, Staff Anesthesiologist, Department of General Anesthesia and Outcomes Research; Director, Center of Perioperative Intelligence, Anesthesia Institute, Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. Maheshwari will lead our
AIMed ICU Session 5: Focussing on the correct problems to solve
Date: 8 October 2019 (Tuesday) 14:30 – 15:30
Speaker: Dr. Todd Ponsky, Director of Clinical Growth and Transformation; Pediatric Surgeon, Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital; Professor, University of California Department of Surgery.
AIMed aims to make all, if not, most of our conference sessions and workshops as interactive as possible, so that our
