AI Storming Through $6.5 Trillion Healthcare Industry

Flesh and blood. Bones and guts. As humans we feel nothing more viscerally — in the most literal sense — than our health. That makes this year’s gathering of the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions Society — MICCAI 2017 — in Quebec City, Canada, one of the best ways to understand how deep learning is improving the lives of people all around us. The conference brings together leading biomedical scientists, engineers and clinicians to talk about new technologies in medical imaging and computer-assisted intervention, providing an early look at trends poised to sweep through the $6.5 trillion healthcare industry.
