Big Data and AI in Digital Health

Our Conference on Big Data and AI in Digital Health is coming up and you are kindly invited to book the date in your calendar:

Friday, 25 September 2020

Sofia, Bulgaria (online event)

Over the last couple of decades, significant progress was made in the applications of Big data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) methods to the field of Digital Health and biomedical research. In addition to the ad-hoc creation of specific methods, this also includes general methodologies that allow researchers and developers to efficiently create, evaluate and deploy specific methods. Many AL, ML or DL-based methods were created and applied to biomedical research and healthcare problems, e.g. in finding disease-related biomarkers, medical image analytics, drug discovery, personalized medicine, clinical trials, etc.


The workshop Big Data and AI in Digital Health has two sessions:

  • Big Data in Genetics
  • AI for cognitive diseases
