近年来,在人工智能引领医疗革命方面传出了许多振奋人心的消息。2017年美国医疗保健支出约3.5万亿美元(占美国GDP的19%),五年内从2012年的2.8万亿美元增长25%。通过研究人员采取的大量措施来降低医疗系统的成本,我们可以看出人工智能的应用在医疗保健中的巨大增长机会。

随着越来越多的健康和基因组数据研究的公开,人工智能驱动的技术正在推动医学知识的发现和医疗保健服务的创新。庞大的市场吸引了很多创业公司以及IBM、谷歌等大公司尝试通过人工智能改善医疗诊断,其中通过人工智能处理医学影像、数据分析等功能已经在多家医院临床实现。

人工智能可将复杂、高维度的医学影像数据,降维使其更易处理,因而可以快速、准确地从医学影像中发现病症的信息,还可以实现早筛早查,帮助患者尽早发现并及时治疗。

人工智能还可以优化管理工作流程,提升诊疗效率,辅助医生诊断,同时解放医生,让更多人获得高质量、高效率医疗服务。

然而,人工智能在医疗方面的实际实施仍然面临着多重挑战:目前的监管缺乏评估人工智能系统安全性和有效性的标准;数据交换的继续可能成为维持AI系统的障碍,因为当前的医疗基础设施不能提供数据共享的激励。尽管许多AI应用程序一直在帮助临床医生提高工作效率,但临床决策仍然很少。克服这些问题需要医疗保健和技术社区之间的密切合作,这是本次会议将要探讨的议题。

本次会议将汇集一群杰出的医疗保健从业者,生命科学研究人员,数据科学家,技术专家和企业家,分享他们的深入知识,以及数据科学和人工智能技术如何推动提高患者的医疗质量,提高系统效率,减少成本,等等。

NECINA 2018 Boston Digital Health Conference


Overview:

During the past decades, there are lots of exciting artificial intelligence (AI) based innovations that drive healthcare revolution. U.S. health care spent about $3.5 trillion (19% of US GDP) in 2017 with a 25% increase within five years from $2.8 trillion in 2012. Plenty of efforts have been taken to reduce the costs in the healthcare systems, among which we have seen tremendous growth opportunities in AI application to healthcare. With increasingly available health and genomic data, AI-driven technologies are enabling innovations in advancing medical knowledge discovery and health care delivery. AI can effectively reduce healthcare labor cost as well as improve efficiency in image analysis, administrative workflow optimization, virtual nursing assistants and dosage error reduction.

However, AI healthcare practical implementation is still facing multiple challenges: Current regulation lacks of standards to assess AI system safety and efficacy; The continuation of the data exchange might become an obstacle for sustaining AI system as current healthcare infrastructure doesn't provide incentives for data sharing. Although many AI applications have been helping clinicians with productivity, clinical decision making is still rare. Overcoming those problems would require close collaboration between healthcare and technology community.

NECINA E Club May Meeting - 11/02


How Start-ups Get Customers:

Using Content Marketing & Social Media to Tell a Better Story

Overview:
In our November monthly meeting, NECINA E Club has the honor of having Professor Kim Donlan, the CEO of RedSwan5 give a presentation on the following topics.


For many tech start-ups, getting the attention of prospective customers is difficult. The struggle to prove that your products and services are truly unique and will improve your customer's business is hard to prove. Traditional trade advertising and tradeshows are expensive, very slow and often don't lead to the important early stage customers you need.
In this workshop, you will learn how content marketing and social media can help build an audience for your business create a unique value proposition that stands out increase leads and your prospect list.
The most important aspect of this discussion will be how to begin to see your products and services from your customer's perspective. And using the new view, how would you market your business?

After the talk, we will have a roundtable introduction and discussion by E Club members.

NECINA 2017 Annual Meeting - 06/17
    



Overview:



Ten years ago, China was busy studying the latest innovation from the USA and applying these to local environments (Google->Baidu, Facebook-> Renren). Many USA companies were "outsourcing" manufacturing, engineering to China. Ten years later, we are now starting to see a reversed trend: manufacturing jobs are moving back to USA, big powerhouses in China now go west, and in some areas technologies and adoptions have leapt ahead of the west (mobile payment, O2O service models).


Coming to the year of 2017, there is continuous growth in multiple industries, from Sharing Economy, Self Driving Car, to Fintech Revolution and Artificial Intelligence. What are the trends and opportunities during this movement? What kind of collaboration will be happening between US and China? What career and business opportunities are there for professionals and entrepreneurs? You are invited to join us and meet with our distinguished speakers and learn some great insights from them.

Conference Ticket includes access to:
  • Conference and Keynote sessions 9am-4pm
  • Company and Startup showcase 9am -4pm

Participants of our Annual Conference are invited to our Evening VIP Dinner reception.
Dinner will be at 6:00 pm at NetBrain HQ, located at 15 Network Dr, Burlington, MA 01803 .
