Key themes:


The future is Artificial Intelligence
Leading experts will present a vision of the future where Artificial Intelligence is the norm.

Artificial Intelligence is now
Healthcare professionals will share examples of Artificial Intelligence that is already being applied to healthcare e.g. The Alder Hey Children’s Hospital teddy bear project.

Is this the right time to be commissioning Artificial Intelligence solutions? 

At a time when the NHS is cash-strapped and Artificial Intelligence is at an early development stage, is it the right time to be commissioning this technology?

Getting the most out of Artificial Intelligence technology
If you decide to adopt this technology how can you ensure you maximise its benefit?

It is only just machine-learning and there’s nothing very intelligent or cognitive?
Is this really a major breakthrough, or is it another trend or fad? We investigate.
