Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Virtual Summit

May 24, 2024

The Endocrine Society’s AI in Healthcare Virtual Summit, November 8-9, 2024, is an innovative 2-day virtual event designed to inform providers, healthcare professionals, researchers, technologists, industry stakeholders, and educators on the capabilities of artificial intelligence in the healthcare field. This summit offers a unique opportunity to delve into the transformative potential of AI in revolutionizing patient care and shaping the future of medicine. 

Attendees will discover how AI technologies are redefining diagnostics, treatment planning, and patient outcomes in healthcare in addition to exploring the latest advancements in AI-driven healthcare, from predictive analytics to machine learning algorithms. The summit will be held in conjunction with Matchbox Virtual, which provides an innovative user experience that mimics attendance at a physical conference site. Major content areas include Diagnosis and Prediction, Drug Discovery and Development, and Natural Language Processing (NLP).

Keynote Speaker:

Dr. Evan D. Muse, MD, PhD, MCTI Scripps Research Translational Institute, is a preventive cardiologist dedicated to reducing the health burdens associated with heart disease. His mission is to identify risk factors in patients to optimize lifestyle and treatment strategies before the symptoms of heart disease manifest. He is an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine and Associate Program Director for Research of the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship at the Scripps Clinic, as well as an Assistant Professor of Molecular Medicine at the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla, California. As a physician-scientist, Dr. Muse aims to improve patient outcomes through the use of polygenic risk scores and digital medicine approaches, integrating genetics, lifestyle, and health data to optimize medical treatments and lifestyle recommendations. With a passion for cross-disciplinary collaboration, he has served as a judge for the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE and IBM Watson AI XPRIZE competitions, sits on the Founding Members Council of the Digital Medicine Society, and is an Associate Editor for the Nature Partner Journal - Digital Medicine.

Focus Areas:

Throughout the summit, participants will engage with leading experts and industry pioneers to explore:

  1. Diagnosis and Prediction: AI algorithms can analyze medical images, such as X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans, to assist doctors in detecting abnormalities and making accurate diagnoses. AI can also analyze patient data, including symptoms, medical history, and genetic information, to predict the likelihood of certain diseases or conditions.
  2. Drug Discovery and Development: AI is being used to accelerate the drug discovery process by analyzing vast amounts of biological and chemical data to identify potential drug candidates. AI algorithms can also predict how different drugs will interact with specific patients, leading to more targeted and effective treatments.
  3. Natural Language Processing (NLP): NLP algorithms can analyze unstructured data from sources like electronic health records, medical notes, and research papers to extract valuable insights and support clinical decision-making. NLP-powered chatbots can also interact with patients to answer questions, provide information, and schedule appointments.
