The role of genomic AI technology 

As the title suggests, one of the upcoming AIMed Breakfast Briefing focuses on genomic artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Technology not only facilitated our study of a complete set of genes within an organism but also the onset and progress of a disease within a particular genetic makeup. This allows us to determine the best possible treatment or care plan for an individual patient. 

Earlier, AIMed spoke with SOPHiA GENETICS’ Senior Vice-President Radiomics and renown mathematician, Thierry Colin to find out more about how genomic AI technology and a combination of genomics and radiomics could provide a new kind of quantitative information to better assist oncologists in the treatment of cancer patients (you may read the full interview on AIMed Magazine Volume 2, Issue 2: The Cardiology & Radiology Issue) . 

Once again, experts from SOPHiA GENETICS, together with AIMed, will detail how the same technology could potentially benefit children with rare forms of medical conditions and challenges of data-driven medicine. 

AIMed Breakfast Briefing in Australia 

AIMed announced in May it’s partnering with Best Case Scenario (BCS), a leading event management company to launch AIMed Australia this November. The partnership is an extension of AIMed’s vision: to bring about a revolution that embraces a new paradigm of medicine and healthcare propelled by AI and related new technologies. 

Leading to the AIMed Australia conference are a series of seminars and workshops, to provide our audience an overview of the local AI landscape, understand the challenges and benefits of deploying AI in the local healthcare system, and connect experts from various sectors. 

In this particular Breakfast Briefing session, three Australian clinicians will be presenting their work on using AI and related innovations to solve practical challenges that they experienced regularly. AIMed will then select the winning solution to be showcased at AIMed Australia this November.
