The global health care landscape is facing unprecedented challenges, including an aging population, increasing rates of chronic disease and workforce shortages. The need for efficient, equitable and patient-centered systems has never been more important.  

Artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize health care by optimizing workflows, improving diagnostics, creating personalized treatment plans and paving the way for novel applications such as virtual assistants, robotic surgery and predictive analytics.  

How is artificial intelligence already being used and what new applications are being explored? What challenges and biases exist for implementation in our current systems? Join us as three experts weigh in on how AI is shaping the future of health care and how interdisciplinary collaboration is key to driving innovation.
