We are on the brink of a revolution in healthcare. A significant driving force is the recent advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially at the intersection of deep-learning and healthcare.

At Curai, we are building a healthcare system with AI-in-the-loop that is poised to redefine and elevate the role of our doctors – empowering them to deliver the optimal care, when, where and to whom it is most needed. This talk will focus on applications of AI-powered medical diagnostics; how it is built and the challenges and promises of applying it in a real-world health setting.
