The AI for Health Equity Virtual Symposium is a 2-day virtual conference and a startup competition followed by a 4-week workshop series intended to unite students, professionals, and practitioners to discuss cutting-edge technologies and the impact of utilizing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in biomedicine and beyond.
The purpose of the Conference is to align on a shared knowledgebase of current applications of AI/ML and bioinformatics while raising awareness and tackling challenges with applications of AI/ML. The outcome of this Conference and Workshop Series is actionable strategies designed to reduce bias and tackle other issues in AI/ML, specifically the effects on underrepresented groups when utilizing AI/M to drive decision-making.
