D A I M - Diversity for AI in Medicine

The Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (CAIM) launches an initiative for diversity and inclusion in AI research for healthcare with a keynote lecture by the renowned robotics specialist Prof. Franziska Mathis-Ullrich.

CAIM wants to strengthen diverse viewpoints in AI research for healthcare, encouraging both female and minority researchers to embark on an AI in medicine career and combatting biases in AI algorithm development. Its new initiative DAIM (Diversity for AI in Medicine) starts in May 2022 with an invited keynote by Franziska Mathis-Ullrich, Assistant Professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, co-founder of Ophthorobotics AG and specialist in robot-assisted surgery and AI in medical interventions.
