The second annual Artificial Intelligence in Oncology Symposium, held virtually Monday, Oct. 19, through Tuesday, Oct. 20, is right around the corner. The virtual conference has a diverse lineup of speakers and panelists who will engage in discussions on how AI and machine learning are being used as diagnostic, prognostic and predictive tools for precision oncology utilizing routinely acquired imaging scans from pathology and radiology, their role in drug discovery, and the ethics and policy surrounding this rapidly evolving field.
The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center and Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics at Case Western Reserve have carefully selected pre-eminent leaders in AI in medicine to speak at this year’s symposium. An internationally recognized expert in radiology and champion for use of AI in medical imaging, Geraldine McGinty, chief contracting and strategy officer at Weill Cornell Medicine, will deliver the symposium’s plenary address. Four focused sessions will feature the following keynote speakers:
Drug Discovery: Russ Altman of Stanford University
Radiology: Aashima Gupta of Google
Ethics and Policy: Vinay Prasad of the University of California, San Francisco
Pathology: Yinyin Yuan of The Institute of Cancer Research, London
Attendees also will hear from rising stars in the field of AI in oncology, selected from abstract submissions. The symposium will be accessible through an interactive web-based conference application where attendees will not only be able to view presentations, but also ask questions during panel discussions and network behind the scenes.
New this year, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a chosen virtual networking event immediately following the symposium. Two concurrent “Ask the Experts” conversations will focus on the use of AI in radiology and on digital pathology, and are designed to enable greater networking, providing an opportunity for participants to ask questions and trainees to make connections on their career paths with leading experts in the field.
