Center for Computational Health - 2018 NorthEast Computational Health Summit

2nd NorthEast Computational Health Summit (NECHS):
AI in Healthcare

April 27, 2018
Cambridge, MA

On Friday April 27th, MIT and IBM Research will co-host the 2nd NorthEast Computational Health Summit (NECHS). The theme of this year’s summit is AI in Healthcare, with the objective of bringing together machine learning, medical informatics and computational health professionals to share latest developments and explore potential collaborations to unlock the potential of Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare.

The summit will feature invited keynotes and an interactive panel on explanatory models, as well as submitted papers and posters on various aspects of computational health including deep learning, observational studies, predictive modelling, translational informatics, patient engagement, health behavior and digital health.  There will also be ample opportunities for less formal interactions at lunch-time, as well during a relaxed networking event at the end of the day.

Detailed agenda and list of invited speakers to follow. Information on the 1st Computational Health Summit (2017, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center) can be found here.
