Editorial Team |


As stated by most of the main experts in the field, we are in the midst of an "Artificial Intelligence awakening", given that AI technologies can now match or surpass humans in fundamental skills like image recognition and also that digital technologies will definitely continue to accelerate.

This is a strategic topic that will be punctually addressed within Frontiers Health conference 2018, by Gabriel Scali, who will be holding the one-hour Masterclass "Explainable AI and Autonomous Agents in healthcare". (November 15 – 10:15 AM – 11:15 AM)

Gabriel, Human-AI Collaboration researcher at Brunel University London – Reckon Digital/Healthware Group, will deal with the adoption of AI capabilities in healthcare problematic in certain areas, like diagnostics, from a researcher's point of view, mainly based on two approaches: Human-Autonomy Teaming (HAT) and Explainable AI (XAI), and how they could be applied in realistic contexts. The Masterclass will include a 30 mins talk followed by 30 mins of Q&A.
