Artificial Intelligence is changing the healthcare industry from many perspectives, a major topic of AI in medicine is the one related to Clinical Desision Support (CDS) to assist clinicians at the point of care.

CDS can support all aspects of clinical tasks, but to be effective, It must be properly integrated within the clinical workflow as well as with health records. A typical application is a Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) to assist doctors in the interpretation of medical signals and images. CAD involves not only AI but also Computer Vision, Signal Processing and specific medical aspects. CADs find application in: breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, coronary artery disease, Alzheimer’s disease and many other.

eHealth is relevant to the AI community, in fact many open research aspects are still open in the field: Big Data (data collection, processing, etc.), Interoperability of systems, IoT and Health, Human/patient interaction with advanced devices, medical signal and image processing, medical expert systems, etc..

The Workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers, enterprises and developers to share and discuss  advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence applied to medicine and health care. The  workshop covers theoretical and practical aspects as well as technologies and systems.

The Workshop is held within the AI*IA 2017 Conference
