Crossing the Rubicon in AI Decision-Making: A Clinical Dilemma

When:  Mar 18, 2024 from 08:45 AM to 06:30 PM (ET)

Join us for an exciting full-day conference navigating the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) with clinical decision-making and the role of the patient.

This BioSymposium will explore the complex AI landscape. What are the ethical and practical challenges of using this technology to diagnose conditions and make treatment recommendations? When is AI integration compulsory and who bears responsibility? And what potential sanctions are imminent for non-use?

    • How AI is currently being used in biotechnology and clinical practice 
    • Case studies of real-world applications  
    • IP considerations, identifying the drug or device developer and the owner.
