ICCAI 2020: Meaningful AI in the Age of COVID-19

The upcoming ICCAI’2020 Conference, titled “Meaningful AI in the Age of COVID-19”, will be held on September 10-11, 2020.

ICCAI is the annual meeting of the Society for Complex Acute Illness (SCAI), which, since its inception over 15 years ago, has successfully bridged the domains clinical practice of critical care medicine and quantitative approaches to understanding critical illness, with a strong translational focus. On the methodological side, it has emphasized eclecticism, covering, through its interdisciplinary membership, modeling approaches ranging from pure mechanistic differential equations models and agent-based models to purely data-driven machine learning techniques.

We strongly believe that a smart and flexible combination of techniques leveraging individual strength of each approach where appropriate is the only way to successfully address the complexity of real-world problems in acute illness and will showcase this at ICCAI-2020.

Given the historical circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, ICCAI’2020 will be conducted entirely online, using Zoom teleconferencing technology. Download the full program here(PDF) or see below.
