Conference “AI in Health: French-German perspectives”, Nov. 5th, Smart Data Forum

Digitization in healthcare generates massive databases which have allowed the implementation of new AI-based solutions. This technological shift brings new scientific, economic and political opportunities and challenges in our healthcare systems. AI in health has thus become a top priority in European public policy as well as in the private sector. It represents a paradigm shift towards 6P-medicine (predictive, preventive, proof-based, patient-centric, personalized and precise) which will have an impact on well-being.
