Why this conference?

Background

AI-driven applications for health care are booming globally. While much of the attention is being given to innovations from high-income contexts, there is a growing community of data scientists, entrepreneurs and healthcare workers who are exploring how AI can improve health outcomes. Indeed, innovative ideas, motivation and a deep understanding of the local needs are present in many countries – yet there is an urgent need for more opportunities to research and publish on AI in global health; to learn how to transition great ideas into impactful solutions; to connect across disciplines, sectors and geographies; and to build a repository of evidence and lessons learned that can serve as a best practice guide for those innovating in the space. In response to the potential as well as the need, the Harvard Global Health Institute and partners will convene experts, students, innovators, policymakers and others driving the health data science and AI agenda.
