The conference was held in Paris on the afternoon of June 19th on the premises of the Wallonia-Brussels General Delegation. With the aim of building stronger ties between BioWin and Medicen Paris Region, the conference followed the e-health and medical imaging networking event organized by the two clusters last summer in Chaudfontaine.
The programme included one session on artificial intelligence applications in e-health, and the other on AI applications in imaging and radiotherapy. The event ended in a pitch session then a networking session. One hundred and fifty attendees, manufacturers, academics, clinicians and consultants shared their thoughts on the progress and challenges of artificial intelligence in these two key fields for 4P (predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory) medicine.
Walloon speakers included Dim3, Microsoft Benelux, Oncoradiomics, Osimis, Cytomine, Cetic, ULB (Machine Learning Group) and UCL (MIRO).
Another interesting fact: in the morning attendees enjoyed a visit to iLumens at Paris Descartes University. Professor Alexandre Mignon welcomed around twenty conference attendees to this training and research department that designs and applies various health simulation techniques (high fidelity models, standardized patients, serious games, etc.) for medical students and health professionnals in France and in other countries.
