Twelve years ago Labroots launched a new system of learning for a global scientific audience. Now, the 2021 Clinical Diagnostics & Research Virtual Event Series will again bring together clinicians, researchers, medical experts and professionals for the twelfth time, Labroots aims to elevate the level of collaboration and in turn, advance clinical diagnostics, research and medicine.
On November 10, 2021 thousands of will join in a discussion of the continuous progress made with advances in laboratory testing and patient care and treatment. With new technologies and treatments available, updates in regulatory processes are also necessary to ensure patient safety and proper practices.
"Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially machine learning, has grown and proliferated in a ground-changing way across different industries and sectors. AI is particularly poised to make a tremendous impact in healthcare and biotechnology, especially in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic that has put stress on healthcare systems worldwide," said Dr. Alexander Wong, Professor and Canada Research Chair at the University of Waterloo, Canada. "During the LabRoots conference, I will share how AI is being leveraged for COVID-19 clinical decision support and treatment planning through the lens of the COVID-Net open source initiative aimed at building high-performing deep learning AI models and diverse data repositories for the scientific community and clinical community to leverage to advance the field."
- Alexander Wong, Ph.D., P.Eng., SMIEEE (Keynote Speaker)
