Medical Intelligence Group Summit 2019

About The Medical Intelligence Group Summit

Medicine has been a clinical science, supported by data.
Medicine is about to become a data science, supported by clinicians.

Artificial intelligence is rapidly becoming more pervasive in medicine and healthcare. Clinicians, however, are not always adequately prepared/ educated to embrace this new paradigm shift. Physicians with an education or dedication for data science are ideally suited to be members of a special cohort to both encourage and educate fellow physicians in this burgeoning domain.

Summit Logistics

Short Presentations. The preliminary format of this summit is a combination of short (5-10 minute) “TED-like” talks by volunteer presenters followed by 10 or more minutes for group discussion (called “10 x 10” sessions). The talks can be on any mini topic that pertains to data and/or artificial intelligence particularly in medicine and healthcare that would provide an important takeaway for our group (such as differences in cognitive process between physicians and data scientists, use of spiking neural network in healthcare, etc). This format will foster lively group discussions.

The 10-minute talk can also be presentation of a difficult problem that the group can discuss and try to solve together (such as current limitations of deep learning for ultrasound studies, data science education of younger generation clinicians, etc).

The 10 x 10 format can be flexible (more or less time for presentation or discussion) but 20 minutes total will be allotted per presenter.

Attendees are recommended to submit one or two talk titles (accompanied by a one sentence description of no more than 50 words). Our entire group will have an opportunity to vote (in June) on which talks (a total of 12-16) will be given at the summit. A separate link will be available for your submissions.

Moderated Breakfast Panel Discussion. There will also be ample time for group interaction in the form of a breakfast panel focused on data science. You will have the opportunity to submit your questions also by a separate link that will be made available.

“Neural” Networking. There will be several networking breaks as well as a networking dinner on Friday night and lunch on Thursday for all of us to interconnect in a “human-to-human” way.
