AI in Healthcare: a Game Changer?

Although AI is thought to be in its infancy, it is already changing the way we think about health care. Expectations are high about AI and at the speed that it is moving it brings hope in many  areas of health care.  The Seattle Health Innovation Meetup group’s next event is Thursday September 13 at 4pm at the Cambia Grove and will focus on how AI might – or might not- change how healthcare is delivered. Please pre-register at this link.

Join these speakers from the Allen Institute Artificial Intelligence Incubator, KenSci, and CuraCloud as we explore the possibilities with those who are using this technology for patients, providers, payors, and researchers.

This is the kickoff to our 2018-19 season of events. We will give you, the audience, an opportunity to announce your projects in progress or services that could be helpful to others.
