We are in the brink of a revolution in healthcare. A significant driving force is the recent advancements in Artificial intelligence, especially at the intersection of deep-learning and healthcare. We envision a healthcare system with AI-in-the-loop that is poised to redefine and elevate the role of our doctors - empowering them to deliver the optimal care, when, where and to whom it is most needed.

The talk will provide an overview of advancements in applications of deep learning to healthcare. We will also share insights into scaling these academic advancements to a real user-doctor facing system - we will showcase our research at Curai to highlight challenges and practical considerations to scale healthcare access to everyone.
