Help shape AI for Emergency Medicine – 20th February 2020

About this Event

“Machines will not replace physicians, but physicians using AI will soon replace those not using it.”

The Lancet, 2019

This is a call to Emergency Medicine practitioners in London who are interested in learning about artificial intelligence and its potential to improve emergency care. This meeting will be an interactive discussion amongst clinicians to understand what AI can bring to clinical practice, and importantly understand the limitations and opportunities of using big data in frontline medicine. The meeting is supported by Abtrace, a startup led by clinicians to co-develop AI tools to improve urgent and critical care care.
