Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare



On Saturday 21 September, the Centre held its second annual Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Symposium. 72 people were in attendance, ranging from CEOs, nurse managers, clinical designers, oncologists, GPs and OTs to data scientists, technologists, students and educators.

The symposium looked at preparing the future health workforce for artificial intelligence in a number of different areas and explored the role of disruptors and enablers. If you’re not sure what the difference is, these two videos sum up the description of “disruptors” and “enablers” well.

Our disruptors were:

AI Health – Australia’s first artificial intelligence company specialising in gathering, exchanging and coordinating vital data that underpins the future of the innovative health sector

Starkey Tech Hearing Industries – developer of Livio AI, the world’s first hearing aid that tracks body, brain health and falls

Virtus Health – the first Australian provider to use “Ivy”, artificial intelligence technology which allows embryologists to identify the best embryo for each woman

CancerAid – a free mobile app for people affected by cancer

Our enablers were:

ANDHealth – commercialisation support for digital health

IntelliHQ – AI solutions for hospital system efficiency

Creative Tech Ventures Fund – a startup investment fund

Remarkable – Australia’s first disability-focused impact accelerator

We also heard from:

Belinda Ward from the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision about social robots and the Townsville Hospital trial of “Pepper”

Professor Nikolai Petrovsky from Flinders University about his world-first AI-charged flu vaccine and what it’s like to deploy AI in the clinical setting

Professor Bela Stantic from Griffith University about big data and smart analytics for predicting healthcare outcomes

Susie Sheldrick from Silverpond about using AI responsibly and applying ethical principles


Unfortunately, the video recording of these presentations failed meaning we are unable to share the videos of these sessions and the interactive panel session with all our disruptors and enablers. All slides from the presentations can, however, be downloaded by clicking on the link below.
