Upcoming Healthcare related events


On Tuesday, April 30, the MIT Analytics Speaker Series is glad to welcome three great startups that use artificial intelligence to revolutionize healthcare. Our speakers will show how various types of data (numerical data, voice recordings, and images) can be harnessed using machine and deep learning to help doctors improve patients’ lives. Each startup will present a technical case study of their work in the healthcare industry, from data, to models, to decisions. The talk will take place in E62-223 from 12-1pm. Lunch will be provided.

Please register for the event on Sloan Groups at http://bit.ly/2ZstElD.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
