Special Workshop 4

Prepare Your Lab for Era of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare and Clinical Diagnostics: AI Technologies, Applications, and Best Paths to Deployment

Thursday, May 2, 2024 ● 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Coming at light speed to every area of your clinical laboratory, pathology group, or genetic testing company is artificial intelligence (AI).

Yes! Whether it is lab automation, analyzers and instruments, software, or contract services, every company selling your lab services will soon tell you that their produce as “artificial intelligence inside.” But will you and your team understand enough about the technologies behind a vendor’s AI to know if it is trustworthy, reliable, and safe to use in the delivery of patient care?

By now, you probably know some of these enabling technologies. A few examples are:

  • Machine Learning (ML)
  • Deep Learning (DL)
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Neural Networks (NN)

Then there are the techniques and skills required to develop the AI and apply it as designed. Terms that describe these skills include:

  • Generative AI
  • Prompt Engineering
  • Explainable AI (XAI)
  • Machine Learning Bias

Recognizing your interest and need to be a savvy buyer of AI in its different forms—whether inside automation and analyzers or powering analytics and guiding workflow through your lab—we’ve arranged a special, one-day, intensive learning experience for you and your team. It follows the Executive War College and takes place on Thursday, May 2.

Your leader and guide will be Ajit Singh, PhD, an internationally-recognized leader in artificial intelligence, diagnostic imaging (both pathology and radiology) and venture capital. You’ll get up close and personal to the key elements of AI—essential knowledge you need to make informed decisions about when to acquire and deploy AI in your lab.

Here is where you will learn about the capabilities of the current generation of AI; how to evaluate different AI products that have different enabling technologies under the hood; and why some functions in your lab are not ready to be handled by AI.

This may be the most important workshop for your management team and your management career because it will provide you with a sound foundation of knowledge about AI—what it is, what it can do, and where it’s going next. You’ll come away with the knowledge and the confidence needed to establish the right path forward for your lab’s use of artificial intelligence.

Early registrations point to the possibility that this unique and valuable AI workshop will probably sell out. Act today to register you and your team to guarantee your prime seat at this important learning opportunity..
