Key speaker at the AI conference is Google's Philip Maurer, Head of Customer Engineering, Public Sector & Life Sciences. Throughout the day, Welfare Tech will provide guidance on the possibilities for business collaboration and support opportunities.
We share the knowledge
Welfare Tech currently runs four projects where companies, research institutes and public institutions can partner up to develop new technological solutions for the healthcare sector.
- Our task is to transfer knowledge from the research institutions to the rest of the industry and vice versa. We have many years of experience with innovation projects across industries, and many of our members see interesting opportunities in working with artificial intelligence in the welfare field, explains Søren Parmar-Sielemann, project manager at Welfare Tech.
AI in the national strategy
The AI conference is organized by Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark in collaboration with MedCom and the innovation network Danish Healthtech. The conference follows the Danish government's national strategy for artificial intelligence. The strategy sets up four tracks that characterize the Danish approach to AI:
- Ethical basis with the human being in focus
- Danish scientists must do research in order to develop artificial intelligence
- Danish companies must achieve growth by developing and using artificial intelligence
- The public sector must use artificial intelligence to offer world-class service.
The Danish government gives high priority to artificial intelligence in health. Life science - including the field of health technology - is one of Denmark's major strengths. The purpose of prioritizing artificial intelligence in healthcare is to be able to provide faster and better diagnosis as well as more targeted treatment of diseases.
Søren Parmar-Sielemann from Welfare Tech will give advice on the following projects and how these can support collaborations between private companies and public actors on the use of data and AI:
