International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Health Care
Venue: COMSTECH Secretariat, Islamabad
The healthcare industry is evolving rapidly with large volumes of data and increasing challenges in cost and patient outcomes. Artificial Intelligence with its wide applications in the healthcare systems e.g. managing claims, detecting fraud, improving clinical workflows, and predicting hospital-acquired infections helps reduce medical costs, bringing more accuracy in diagnosis and better predictions in the treatment plan. The developed countries are already reaping the benefits of AI by integrating it in their healthcare systems. However, in low resource settings, its applications are very limited. In such settings, AI can play a tremendous role in improving the efficiency of the healthcare systems.
Realizing the importance of AI in the healthcare systems, COMSTECH has planned a workshop on the theme in November 2020. The three-day workshop will be held at the COMSTECH headquarters in one of most modern and scenic capital cities of the world, Islamabad. The city was purpose-built as capital of 6th largest globally and 2nd most populous (in OIC) country Pakistan in 1966. Pakistan according to the Forbes magazine is a hidden treasure for tourists. The country is rich in cultural diversity, ancient history, diverse landscape, cuisines, modern cities, and of locally produced items.
Details of the workshop and application process will be shared on the website soon. COMSTECH will provide complete local hospitality, internal transportation, and sightseeing visits for all registered participants.
