There is no way around dealing with artificial intelligence (AI). In medicine, machine learning, a sub-area of AI, is becoming increasingly important. ML focuses on the development of systems that learn or improve their performance based on the data they use.

Professor Alexander Jung from Aalto University in Helsinki is dedicated to this topic and, as Professor of Machine Learning, researches the opportunities and challenges of self-learning systems. Born in Austria, he will be giving a lecture to provide an insight into his research work.

Afterwards, experts from the fields of medicine, biostatistics and biomedical ethics will discuss with the audience the potential applications in medical practice and the risks involved in everyday use.
