How so you imagine healthcare in 2025 and what is the role of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning?

The Future of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning In Healthcare Conference

This is the future our speakers envisioned on April 27th 2017 in London. Our event was an opportunity to discover the drivers of the Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning movement in healthcare. From robots helping children with autism to a breathalyser diagnosing disease, innovation was the highlight of our day.

We invited award-winning industry disruptors featured in Fortune Magazine, TV News, and CB Insights who are leaders of top AI healthcare companies as well as tech and pharma giants and the NHS to unite under one roof.

We welcomed these change-makers to share their future plans and spark meaningful conversation to go beyond the walls of our conference. How? We started by addressing where we are now and then asking what direction needs to be taken to create positive and meaningful integration of technology in healthcare for generations to come.

Welcome to The Future of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning in Healthcare!
