Join us on Thursday 15th March for our Global Health Forum with a focus this month on data-based and AI approaches to healthcare.

There is currently a surge of interest in the application and development of data-rich approaches in the healthcare sector for analytics, monitoring and decision-making. The range of applications extends from the patient level to organisational aspects of healthcare provision.

This Forum will highlight some of the directions currently being pursued across academic departments at Imperial in close collaboration with Imperial NHS Trusts and Centres using healthcare data in conjunction with advanced computational and mathematical techniques.

The Forum is co-organised by the Institute for Global Health Innovation and the EPSRC Centre for Mathematics of Precision Healthcare and will be followed by a Q&A answer highlighting ongoing research and opportunities
