2.       Keynote Speaker: Alon Ben-Ari, whose academic research and operational goals focus on impacting clinical care using computational methods such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, simulation and natural language processing.
Panel of researchers and start-ups that have used AI and Machine Learning in their healthcare innovations. Each will present their products before the discussion that also includes investor inputs for gauging the likelihood of securing funding for different types of AI-centered start-ups.
Panel: Alon Ben-Ari, MD, acting Chief Health Information Officer at the Puget Sound VA Health Care System; Moran Shochat-Snir, CEO, ClearGenetics; Rajeev Dutt, CEO, Dimensional Mechanics, Eric Fogel, serial entrepreneur, Sigal Ben-Ari, co-founder and CTO at Kodu Care. Audience participation in the panel discussion is encouraged and there will be time to linger and network.
