Event Details: 

Location: University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester NY

This Un-Meeting will focus on the development, enhancement, standardization and regulation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning approaches at all stages of the translational science spectrum. Through the unique, attendee-driven Un-Meeting format, our intent is to foster new collaborations and ideas, advance research, and explore innovative approaches for technology in translational science. Our premise is that AI and machine learning approaches have a host of applications throughout all stages of the translational science spectrum. From modeling chemical structures to making better decisions for patients, the development and enhancement of technology is an undercurrent running throughout the CTSA Program. With this comes opportunities for new software, new areas of focus, updated regulations, and refining integration. Additionally, the challenges of data validity, generalizability of algorithms, reproducibility and regulation continue to need to be addressed.

Potential topics:

  • Regulatory guidance
  • Analytical practices
  • Applications for research (clinical trials)
  • Devices
  • Recruiting (leveraging for community engagement; community engagement applications)
  • Case studies
  • Description of good algorithmic practices (GAP)
  • Drug discovery
  • Precision analytics/ precision medicine
  • Data sets for AI; pseudo data sets
  • Algorithmic bias
  • Reconciliation engines for implementation science
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Rare diseases

An informal networking reception will be held the evening prior to the event on May 31, 2019. More details to come. 

Registration is now live! Space is limited and registration is on a first-come first-serve basis. Please register by May 13, 2019.

CLIC is offering a limited number of travel stipend awards for CTSA Program hub nominees. Each hub is eligible to nominate one individual to receive a stipend award of up to $500 to facilitate participation in the event.
