Topics covered in sessions and keynotes often lead back to the importance of machine learning and AI. With AI and ML technology, providers can not only diagnose faster, but more accurately. “AI tools can be used as an augmentation,” according to David LaBrosse, NetApp Global Solutions Manager, Genomics. “It’s very exciting because you are taking an existing practice such as imaging, and you are enhancing it with another layer of AI – either with the use of computational algorithms or imaging comparison — which allows clinicians to identify and diagnose faster.”
