Symposium on medical imaging and artificial intelligence

09.00, Tuesday 23 January 2018

Academy of Medical Sciences, 41 Portland Place, London


This one-day symposium is being jointly organised by the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). 

The aim of the meeting is to bring together leading experts from Japan and the UK to discuss the current research landscape of medical imaging and the contributions of artificial intelligence to this field. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to reflect on the regulatory and ethical considerations needed to support the effective and impactful adoption of such technologies. 

The symposium will be followed by a reception to discuss funding opportunities and ways to facilitate greater contact and collaboration between the UK and Japan. We are very grateful to the Japanese Embassy for hosting this reception.
