BioRN Lounge with AI Health Innovation Cluster

“Put the word Artificial Intelligence (AI) in your presentation title and become visible” Is this enough?

The AI Health Innovation Cluster wants to make the hidden AI treasure ‘made in’ Heidelberg and Mannheim visible to the world. It aims to build a world-leading AI community in medicine and health.

Klaus Maier-Hein spoke at BioRN Lounge on May 23, to share the vision and mission of the newly founded AI Health Innovation Cluster.

The Cluster has been launched as part of the Heidelberg Mannheim Health & Life Science Alliance. DKFZ, EMBL, the Max Planck Institute for Biomedical Research, Heidelberg University and the University Clinics Heidelberg and Mannheim together with the Central Institute for Mental Health have joined forces to promote cutting-edge research for AI applications in medicine and health.
