MACHINE LEARNING & AI: A HIMSS EVENT
LAS VEGAS, NV - MARCH 5, 2018

Prior to HIMSS Media, Tom was News Editor of IDG's InfoWorld, directing a dozen reporters' coverage for the weekly print publication and daily website. He is a Neal finalist and multiple ASBPE award-winner whose work has appeared on CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Healthcare IT News, Healthcare Finance News, and a range of technology publications, including Computerworld and PCWorld.
There’s a ton of buzz around machine learning and artificial intelligence and the role they’ll play in revolutionizing and improving healthcare, but what are these evolving technologies, how are they different, and what are the multiple layers of use?
No complex health IT ever created has been plug-and-play. The same goes for ML and AI. To take full advantage of its potential, will require a lot of work.
In this morning leadership panel, our speakers look at the current state of machine learning and AI in healthcare and address where we are, where we are going, and what we need to do to get their faster.
What education do stakeholders need? What new vocabulary is required? How do you integrate ML and AI into operational and clinical processes? How do you show ROI?
Our speakers will address these questions and others head-on in a fascinating and insightful discussion that sets the stage for the speakers to follow.
