MIT Scientists on How AI Will Transform Healthcare

Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to transform the world of healthcare. Algorithms are already being used to make diagnosis, read medical images, guide care decisions, and assist in surgeries.

Wonder what’s next for AI and healthcare? If anyone knows the answer, it’s the folks at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). The lab has been at the center of the computing revolution and a key player in developing such innovations as public key encryption, the Internet and, yes, even the Roomba.

Politico’s Joanne Kenen will lead a panel of CSAIL’s top faculty to discuss the latest developments in AI and the challenges and opportunities in harnessing these tools for healthcare.
