COVID-19 has changed our collective understanding of how viruses spread. As the pandemic hits its peak in the United States — with 762,690 people infected and 40,548 deaths in mid-April — many professionals in the medical community are still trying to contain and understand the transmission.

The CDC and the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases have uncovered data about how COVID-19 spreads, but there’s still much to learn. Technology, such as Artificial Intelligence, can help fill in those gaps and give doctors insight into how COVID-19 will wax and wane, and how to prevent future pandemics.

In an effort to further our understanding of how AI can be applied to healthcare, Udacity is holding its first-ever virtual conference titled, “AI for Healthcare in the Time of COVID-19” scheduled for May 12 -13. 

Don’t Miss an Opportunity to Learn from the Best

The two-day, free conference will gather thought leaders who work at the intersection of technology and medicine to discuss how AI has unearthed compelling datasets that can change the way we scale healthcare, help us understand this current pandemic and prevent future ones.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Predicting Disease with AI, How AI Improves Clinical Decision-making
  • How AI is Helping Fight the Spread of COVID-19
  • Can AI Predict & Prevent the Next Pandemic?
  • Ethics in AI and Preventing Bias in Healthcare and Diagnosis 
  • Top Use Cases in AI & How to Scope Them
  • What’s on the Cutting-edge of AI?

Additionally, conference attendees will have the opportunity to attend working sessions led by Udacity instructors — who are currently creating coursework for the upcoming AI for Healthcare Nanodegree program — where participants can collaborate on a project and gain practical skills in AI in healthcare that they can use immediately.
