11 Apr

Medicine is the most complex of all specializations and requires a vast amount of knowledge, skills and practice. Critical role of human factor is a weak point in this area, and today attempts are made to compensate this dependence with AI capabilities. Already today experts recognize the potential of AI tools — from diagnostics of severe diseases to the development of new medications.

AI experts predict that digitalization of healthcare system and the adoption of artificial intelligence will have to increase the availability and quality of medical care, reduce the number of medical errors, and the cost of treating complications in neglected cases.
Digital services for doctors and patients – medical decision support systems, telemedicine platforms, predictive services, chatbots and symptom checkers — will all contribute.

However, it is obvious that the adoption of AI by the healthcare system is associated with a number of ethical and technological difficulties, risks of medical errors and confidentiality. During the session the experts will discuss:

  • Needs and preparedness of the Russian healthcare system to adoption of AI.
  • AI projects support in terms of development and scaling.
  • Approaches to adoption of AI systems and restrictions in clinical practice.
  • Success stories about the use of AI systems in practical healthcare applications.
  • Trust issues concerning AI systems.
  • Prospects for further development of AI-based technologies.
