Leibniz AI Lab

With an exciting, international line-up of speakers and presentations, the first Leibniz AI Lab workshop on "Harnessing Big Data for Precision Medicine and Healthcare" will take place on June 10 and 11, 2021. To accommodate different time zones, sessions will be offered both in the morning (from 9 am to 12:30 pm) and in the afternoon (from 3 pm to 6 pm) (CET/MEZ).  

Medical research, diagnostics and therapy are increasingly IT-supported and networked. Huge amounts of heterogeneous routine care data are already being collected in hospitals, e.g., in intensive care units, as well as in primary care institutions and by citizens in their personal environments. In addition, the use of genomics, metabolomics and other omics data can provide insights into the development of illnesses and suitability for specific treatments, which enables individualized therapies and treatment. Through our series of workshops in Leibniz AI Lab we aim to build a community involving researchers from machine learning, AI, biology, medical professionals and more to address the shared questions.  

The main topics for our first workshop are: 

1. Databases/Dataintegration/Medical Text and Data Mining. 

2. Mental Health 

3. Computational Methods in Medicine 

4. Epidemiology 

Speakers include Tim Althoff from the University of Washington, Robert Hoehndorf from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Helge Frieling from the Medizinische Hochschule Hannover and many more experts. The event is online and is designed for students and researchers, as well as industry professionals.
