Artificial intelligence & bioprinting

Emerging medical technologies

Artificial intelligence and bioprinting will be the central topics of the "Emerging Technologies In Medicine" (ETIM) congress, to be held at the University Hospital, Essen, Germany, on 10-11 February 2017.

Congress chairmen, Professor Michael Forsting, Head of the Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology, and Professor Jochen Werner, Medical Director and Chief Executive Officer, University Hospital of Essen, are inviting clinicians, computer scientists, engineers, researchers, healthcare providers, legislators and other involved disciplines to this first interdisciplinary conference.

‘Further acceleration of medical innovation by upcoming technologies such as artificial intelligence and bioprinting can be safely predicted,’ Forsting points out. Technologies such as individual genome sequencing, high-performance multiparametric imaging, or wearable medical devices, generate exponentially growing datasets, while contemporary data-mining techniques allow the extraction of large amounts of valuable data from existing archives of unstructured medical data. Of this he is convinced: ‘These offer the chance for highly specific clinical decision-making and personalised precision medicine.’
