Bridging the gap: how good ideas become great products

Artificial Intelligence is everywhere, or appears to be. Yet whilst it has the potential to make a big difference in healthcare, in truth there are still relatively few genuine AI deployments that genuinely impact patient outcomes. Based on two decades of experience commercialising AI in healthcare, Anthony will provide some ‘do’s and don’ts’ to consider when bringing AI algorithms
to market, including the most important: “Get out of the building!”.

Dr Anthony Holmes will be speaking in the following theatre:

Theatre 9 - Tuesday 12.30 - 13.00: Bridging the gap: how good ideas become great products
