The AI and healthcare community join forces in direct response to clinicians
demands to be heard
The most powerful names in AI and the global health community will join forces online
for Intelligent Health Inspired (25-27 May 2020).

At a time when collaboration globally is more important than ever; innovation must
continue and healthcare and technology professionals must join forces to fight the
biggest disruptor the world has faced in a generation, COVID-19.

The current pandemic has turned into a gateway for AI adoption in healthcare, from
doctors using AI to triage covid-19 patients to startups retooling and validating screening
tools for COVID-19. According to Accenture, growth in the AI health market is expected
to reach $6.6 billion by 2021—that’s a compound annual growth rate of 40 percent.

The Intelligent Health community of 52,000 multidisciplinary professionals have been
working together to find valuable solutions not only to the current global pandemic but
also other critical challenges the medical world has been facing for years. They will
come together online for 3 days of networking and exclusive talks from experts who are
innovating and working to save lives beyond the global pandemic.

“Now is not a time to delay action, inertia kills. Clinicians in our community are under
pressure like never before as we face the crisis of our times in the healthcare system.
InspiredMinds has always provided a neutral platform for the most powerful names in
health, technology and innovation to speak openly and make changes in a supportive
and collaborative environment. As a world first we have now curated the very best of our
community and opened the IH Inspired platform.” says Sarah Porter, Founder of
InspiredMinds.

Chris Wigley, CEO at Genomics England says: “COVID-19 has, if we needed reminding,
underlined the necessity of data and the study of genomic data in responding to an
international crisis – causing health services to adapt and change at a rapid pace. And in
spite of being physically distanced, the need to connect and share ideas for the benefit
of the global response is more important than ever.”

Speakers include Professor Max Welling, Vice President Technologies, Qualcomm &
Research Chair, Machine Learning at University of Amsterdam, Professor Weihong
Huang, Mobile Health Ministry of Education, China Mobile Lab at Xiangya Hospital
Central South University, Professor Mildred Solomon, President & Professor at The
Hastings Centre & Harvard Medical School, Chris Wigley, CEO at Genomics England,

Professor Gary Marcus, Founder and CEO at Robust.AI, Tim Whittlestone, Chief
Medical Officer at NHS Nightingale Hospital Bristol, and many more.

Key areas of discussion over the three-day online summit will include deep learning for
health data, national scale impact – next generation analysis of health patterns using AI,
healthcare ethics in the AI revolution, listening to the voice of the patient in improving AI
driven healthcare, data modelling and strategies to predict viruses and future
pandemics.

As Tim Whittlestone, Chief Medical Officer at NHS Nightingale Hospital Bristol says: “At
these unprecedented times it is vital that we share ideas, aspirations and fears about the
future of technology and AI in healthcare. The IH online summit will provide an incredible
opportunity for us to start those discussions.”
