QBI - Conference

Day 3: AI, Big Data, &; Science



8:00 AM-10:00 AM

QBI and the Scientific Department of the Embassy of France in the United States present "AI, Big Data and Health", a science fair that will take place virtually on November 9-10 and 12-13, 2020 from 8:00 - 10:00 AM. This science fair aims to bring together different actors from industry, academia, and government from the United States and France to talk about Big Data and AI applications for health.

The application of Artificial Intelligence to health and health data management is one of the areas where the creation of start-ups and the emergence of new technological solutions is massively increasing, in the United States as in France, supported by renowned research institutions. The applications are multiple: aid in diagnosis, analysis of exams, in particular in imaging, contribution to the discovery of new therapeutic targets and molecules. This requires multidisciplinary approaches that involve strengthening the interfaces between experts with very different profiles: AI specialists, researchers in biology and health, doctors, regulators, businesses and patients. These increasingly concrete developments require a reflection in terms of ethics and regulation (legal responsibility, risks potential, influence of AI on the doctor, management of learning data, bias and discrimination). To address these different aspects, this event aims to bring together different experts through a virtual Science Fair open to the general public to discuss these topics within framework of a Franco-American cooperation.

8:00AM PT, 5:00PM CET - PANEL 3: "Who is the Patient: How do we make sense of the data we collect?”

Panel Description: From genes to the social context and life habits, modern technology allows us to gather an immense amount of data on each patient.

The panel will discuss:

  • how to use data to characterize relevant populations
  • how to make sense of all of the data collected on patients
  • how to balance precision and statistical significance.
