Potential and Precarity: AI’s Role in Lung Imaging

Events /Potential and Precarity: AI’s Role in Lung Imaging


Unprecedented and unpredictable, the COVID-19 crisis has had devastating effects on the well-being of the global population. The good news? Progress in AI and lung imaging has catalyzed healthcare innovation, with algorithms to detect COVID-19 developed at breakneck speed. However, this fast tracking can potentially allow unvetted tools to put patients in harm’s way and damage AI’s reputation. This webinar explores AI tools in pulmonary imaging and how they were adapted to COVID-19. We also make a case for why we must work together to collect and validate data across many institutions. Make plans now to watch this 60-minute webinar!
