Talk on Artificial Intelligence for Medicine

In Germany, up to 2030 the number of people older than 65 will increase by 50%. At the same time, the working population will shrink by 20%. This is an enormous challenge for society in general, but for the public healthcare system in particular. To keep the public healthcare system functioning, productivity in hospitals, for example, must be increased with the help of technological innovations but without jeopardizing human dignity. AI and digitization will play a key role, which is one of the research priorities of the University of Lübeck with the second largest university hospital in Germany and its well-developed computer science department. I will present projects and challenges for AI in the medical field.
