Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are integrating into workflows across the health ecosystem. Supplementing researchers’ and clinicians’ views of problems and patients, AI and ML are allowing additional insight for improved outcomes. Most recently, the tech has proved useful for those in the pharmaceutical industry as they respond to pressures placed by COVID-19. Leveraged to gain ground on vaccine and therapeutic platforms, AI and ML have helped move the needle toward safe, effective solutions. In these Transformation Tuesdays panels, we’ll decode the hype, address the need, and further explore the capabilities of these fields as they relate to our current medical environment. Read below our August session descriptions.

August 11 | 1:00 PM | Session 1: Healthcare’s Newest Sidekick
Seen as clinicians’ trusty side-kicks, artificial intelligence and machine learning have been integrated into various workflows. Helping countless innovators understand complex situations, these platforms are allowing providers to see problems and patients on a more comprehensive level. Mimicking some of literature’s best fictional detectives and their partners, caregivers and these computer science marvels are using important context clues to uncover better care.
August 25 | 1:00 PM | Session 2: AI’s Role in Identifying Repurposable Drugs
No one could’ve imagined the pressure pharmaceutical researchers and industry members would be under in early 2020. In a time of crisis with no known solution, experts worked tirelessly to bring hope by way of vaccine and treatment. In these unnerving scenarios, the rapid identification of both new and repurposed potential compounds is key. This panel will discuss the roles AI and ML played in the screening of solutions to combat the deadliest virus in the modern era.
