Conferences brought to you by the Ken Kennedy Institute at Rice University:

2022 AIHCAI in Health Conference

Inaugural 2022 AI in Health Conference | November 8-9, 2022

The Inaugural AI in Health Conference will take place in Houston, home of the largest medical center in the world - the Texas Medical Center hosts 21 hospitals that are visited by 10 million patients each year. The intersection of healthcare and artificial intelligence holds potential, unlike any other innovation the medical industry has seen before. Artificial intelligence’s ability to operate and automate tasks at heightened speed, efficiency, and accuracy has already made an impact on day-to-day hospital care and administrative functions. The AI in Health Conference is designed for researchers, engineers, clinicians, and entrepreneurs interested in using artificial intelligence to provide the next generation of healthcare solutions.

The agenda for the conference will examine how the latest technology is used to revolutionize healthcare and public health. The conference will include keynote speakers, technical talks, an exhibit hall, networking receptions, and poster presentations. This year there will be specialized tracks examining artificial intelligence and machine learning in mental health, imaging, and genomics.
