Udacity AI for Healthcare Conference 2020

Udacity AI for Healthcare Virtual Conference

On 12 and 13 May 2020 Udacity held their online conference “AI for Healthcare in the Time of COVID-19”. The conference has been recorded and featured many interesting speakers and panel discussions. The conference attracted nearly 15,000 live attendees, one of the highest attended Udacity events, a strong indicator of interest in the area.

A personal highlight was the talk with Dr Eric Topol, a renowed medical research, exploring COVID-19 and the role of AI in fighting disease and assisting clinicians, a particular goal to enable doctors to build closer relationships with patients.

Other interesting discussions include:

  • The kinds of applications for AI in healthcare
  • The role of data and data privacy
  • How AI might integrate into the care pathway
  • How AI might integrate into medical and healthcare education

Udacity recently announced a Nanodegree “AI for Healthcare“. Which looks like a great program exploring some of the discussed concepts further.

The presentations are an excellent primer for anyone considering a career in AI and Healthcare. Highly recommended watching.
