Foley Senior Counsel Shabbi Khan and Lucas Silva will host the Health Innovators event titled, “How Artificial Intelligence Will Revolutionize Health Care,” in Foley’s Boston office on Monday, November 7, 2016.

The human brain is an amazing work of art; it has very complex neural circuits and the way it registers, stores, processes, and analyzes information and makes decisions has always been a matter of fascination. To even attempt to replicate the human brain or to “teach” a machine to do that is an extremely ambitious endeavor fraught with controversy. Many a scientist has been fascinated with this concept, and thus was born “artificial intelligence” and “deep machine learning.”

“Artificial intelligence” (AI) is a familiar buzzword for many in the tech sector today. It has been used in the airline industry for years now to assist pilots in making decisions under difficult, high-pressure, complex situations that can be too difficult for an individual to handle, or when the experience of a pilot, or the lack of one, gets in the way of the safety of hundreds of passengers.

AI in health care is a very fresh, still-emerging concept, largely focused on programs that perform and assist with diagnosis, decision-making, and therapy recommendations.

Please join us on Monday, November 7, 2016, for sandwiches, refreshments, and a discussion regarding the many uses – including image interpretation, decision making and therapy guidance, creation of new knowledge, and generating alerts and reminders – and challenges of AI in health care.

Confirmed Speakers:

Clark Freifeld, PhD, Lecturer in Computer Science, Northeastern University

Amir Farjadian, PhD, Postdoctoral Associate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Co-Founder, TAVANA LLC
