The most powerful names in AI and the global health community will join forces online for Intelligent Health Inspired (25-27 May 2020).
At a time when collaboration globally is more important than ever; innovation must continue and healthcare and technology professionals must join forces to fight the biggest disruptor the world has faced in a generation, COVID-19.


The current pandemic has turned into a gateway for AI adoption in healthcare, from doctors using AI to triage covid-19 patients to startups retooling and validating screening tools for COVID-19. According to Accenture, growth in the AI health market is expected to reach $6.6 billion by 2021—that’s a compound annual growth rate of 40 percent. 
The Intelligent Health community of 52,000 multidisciplinary professionals have been working together to find valuable solutions not only to the current global pandemic but also other critical challenges the medical world has been facing for years. They will come together online for 3 days of networking and exclusive talks from experts who are innovating and working to save lives beyond the global pandemic.
"Now is not a time to delay action, inertia kills. Clinicians in our community are under pressure like never before as we face the crisis of our times in the healthcare system. InspiredMinds has always provided a neutral platform for the most powerful names in health, technology and innovation to speak openly and make changes in a supportive and collaborative environment. As a world first we have now curated the very best of our community and opened the IH Inspired platform." says Sarah Porter, Founder of InspiredMinds.
Chris Wigley, CEO at Genomics England says: “COVID-19 has, if we needed reminding, underlined the necessity of data and the study of genomic data in responding to an international crisis – causing health services to adapt and change at a rapid pace. And in spite of being physically distanced, the need to connect and share ideas for the benefit of the global response is more important than ever.”
Speakers include Professor Max Welling, Vice President Technologies, Qualcomm & Research Chair, Machine Learning at University of Amsterdam, Professor Weihong Huang, Mobile Health Ministry of Education, China Mobile Lab at Xiangya Hospital Central South University, Professor Mildred Solomon, President & Professor at The Hastings Centre & Harvard Medical School, Chris Wigley, CEO at Genomics England, Professor Gary Marcus , Founder and CEO at Robust.AI, Tim Whittlestone, Chief Medical Officer at NHS Nightingale Hospital Bristol, and many more.
Key areas of discussion over the three-day online summit will include deep learning for health data, national scale impact - next generation analysis of health patterns using AI, healthcare ethics in the AI revolution, listening to the voice of the patient in improving AI driven healthcare, data modelling and strategies to predict viruses and future pandemics .
As Tim Whittlestone, Chief Medical Officer at NHS Nightingale Hospital Bristol says: “At these unprecedented times it is vital that we share ideas, aspirations and fears about the future of technology and AI in healthcare. The IH online summit will provide an incredible opportunity for us to start those discussions.”
