MIT-MGB AI Cures conference 2024


AI has transformed many areas of life in the last decade, yet the impact of these technologies on patient care is still limited. Building on the combined expertise of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Mass General Brigham (MGB) in AI and clinical practice, the MIT-MGB AI Cures conference showcases ongoing collaborative projects in clinical AI, highlighting cutting-edge research and their impact on patient care. The event is co-organised by the MIT Jameel Clinic, the epicentre of AI and healthcare at MIT, and will feature keynote speeches and panel discussions with several MIT Jameel Clinic researchers including AI faculty lead Regina Barzilay as well as principal investigators Dina Katabi, Marzyeh Ghassemi and Collin Stultz, among others.

Topics covered during the conference include clinical translation of AI tools, regulatory issues in clinical AI, fairness and equity, secure patient data, among others. The day's proceedings will also include a poster competition and session for presenting abstracts on clinical AI, AI biology, AI systems, AI safety and fairness and AI in drug discovery.
