Current and future breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and machine learning have taken root in biotech and have huge potential to change how healthcare is delivered. Computing technologies promise to make drug discovery cheaper and quicker and machine learning techniques can immediately use the true result to improve diagnostic tests.

Algorithms can sift through countless publications almost instantaneously to find evidence in literature to interpret data and therapeutic options of a specific case. Machine and deep learning models can also analyse images in radiology and pathology, with an accuracy and speed that the human brain, no matter how well trained, simply cannot match.

The BioRN Annual Conference 2019 aims to provide an overview on current and future application of artificial intelligence and machine learning contributing to improve health, at different stages.
