What is AIHES?

AI for Health Equity Symposium AIM-AHEAD Annual Meeting (AIHES) is an in-person 2-day conference showcasing AIM-AHEAD stakeholders and invited AI/ML and health equity experts, accompanied by a virtual workshop series.

 

This symposium is intended to raise awareness of artificial intelligence (AI) development, applications, and use cases while sowing the seed for a future generation of AI professionals. We seek to further stimulate conversation on potential AI challenges, opportunities, and solutions.

We strongly encourage participation from individuals and institutions who belong to and serve underrepresented groups. It is critical the discussion includes a diversity of voices, experiences, and perspectives.
