Symposium Research 4.0 #AI4RCT

Artificial Intelligence and Clinical Trials Implications for Patients, Investigators, Institutions

30 Novembre 2018
Sala “Epson”, Politecnico di Milano – via Giovanni Durando, 39, 20156 Milano

30 novembre 2018 – Automation and information technology have redefined many aspects of our lives, it is therefore not unexpected that major technology companies are investing in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for healthcare and research. AI technology, combined with big data, hold the potential to solve many key clinical trial challenges. These include increasing trial efficiency through better protocol design and study management.
Data-driven protocols and strategies powered by advanced AI algorithms, processing data collected from mobile sensors and apps, electronic medical and administrative records, and other sources have the potential to reduce trial costs. We are therefore witnessing the development of what we would call Smart Research Engineering.
Nevertheless, the extensive adoption these innovations does present technological and ethical challenges. These will be among the subjects debated during this workshop, with a panel of experts in the field.
