AI in pre-hospital care

13 November 2019 09:00 to 13:00
Stora konferenshallen, Lindholmen Science Park, Lindholmspiren 3-5, Göteborg
Hanna Maurin Söderholm and Bengt-Arne Sjöqvist from PICTA will together with speakers from the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers participate in this lecture, on the prehospital area with AI in focus. There will also be a demonstration of PICTA's test ambulance.

AI is becoming increasingly prevalent in healthcare, opening up possibilities for better diagnoses, easier access to medical care and contributes to an improved work environment for doctors and nurses. 

In this seminar, we explore the possibilities of using AI in pre-hospital care. Together we will show cases and problematise the use of AI in modern ambulances. 

We will bring a physical ambulance to the seminar and present the current research within AI in relation to the ambulance. We cordially invite doctors, nurses, ambulance staff, computer scientists, and students interested in these aspects.
