Artificial Intelligence for Biomedicine Symposium

Big data has become a ubiquitous watchword of biomedical innovation advocating deployment of data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques to revolutionise biomedical research and practice.

The School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences at UNSW-Sydney is hosting this first-of-its-kind meeting focused on the application of AI/ML methods to topics in biology, health, and medicine. Presentations will showcase efforts taking place across the University and featured by external speakers from other national and international Universities. The event is freely available to the public and we encourage all interested researchers, clinicians, students and industrial parties across disciplines to join us in this exciting event!
