Tid: 2018-10-12 Kl 09:45
Sluttid: Kl 15:30
Plats: BMC, Segerfalksalen, Sölvegatan 19, Lund.
Kontakt: Einar Heiberg,

  • Inventory and information about on ongoing or planned projects in artificial intelligence and machine learning in medicine.
  • Day to make connections and exchange experiences. Examples on common challenges are specific for the medicine are 1) large scale image management, 2) extract images from PACS system, 3) privacy and GDPR, 4) Computational capacity inside hospital firewall.


The program is formed from a fika to fika concept to ensure ample opportunities for interaction. Before lunch is intended for a wider audience and more overview, and after lunch are focused more on practical challenges, hands on, and taking next steps. 

09:45-10:15: Fika and informal discussions
