Child Health Data and Artificial Intelligence
Chair: Arie Melamed-Yekel, ALYNnovation, ALYN Hospital, Jerusalem (Israel)

EPTRI is delighted to welcome you to our sixth webinar on Child Health Data and Artificial Intelligence. Our 90 minute webinar will focus on the safe inclusion of pediatric data in artificial intelligence. Learn from experts on the best practices to acquire and use paediatric health data to increase innovation in paediatric health technology. We will delve into the benefits of artificial intelligence for collecting and managing paediatric health data, but also the best practices for this use. We look forward to seeing you at our next exciting webinar event.
