“Artificial intelligence [AI] is not new,” says Intouch VP of innovation, Abid Rahman, “however, AI implementation has exploded recently due to the convergence of several things.” From the unprecedented amounts of useful, customer-generated data to the exponential growth in computing power, plus cheaper, faster data storage; increased internet connectivity speeds; the emergence of new and powerful algorithms like deep neural networks; and of course, shifting consumer needs, there’s a lot to consider when building effective, reliable AI systems.

To help us understand and tackle the challenges involved, Rahman will lead a one-hour master class on AI implementation, opportunities and challenges in healthcare at 9:10 a.m. (Eastern time) on Friday, October 16, 2020. The presentation — which kicks off a fast-track session moderated by Kristin Milburn, global head of digital health partnerships at Healthware Group — is part is one of more than 100 that will be featured at the American Health Information Management Association’s AHIMA2020, a three-day virtual conference for health professionals.

Elements of AI that Rahman’s masterclass will cover include:

  • machine learning
  • deep neural networks
  • the process of training AI
  • natural language processing
  • computer vision (think x-rays and other types of medical imaging)
  • robotic process automation
  • benefits of using AI to solve healthcare challenges
