Digital Opening Event CAIM

Join us online for the official opening event of our Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, hosted by the Swiss Institute for Translational and Entrepreneurial Medicine, sitem-insel!

The digital event has two parts: A German-language Opening featuring representatives of the University of Bern, Bern University Hospital, politics and and our Center Project Manager. Also look forward to a panel discussion between stakeholders from the clinic, MedTech industry, healthcare administration, patient advocacy and ethics, moderated by SRF anchor Sonja Hasler.

In the second part, be excited for insights into AI research for medicine in Bern: Our scientific symposium in English offers you a glimpse into the research at the various institutions in the Bern Biomedical Engineering Network, covering topics as diverse as emergency medicine, epidemiology (COVID-19), neuroimaging, digital pathology and pediatric psychiatry. In a special feature, we have invited Gregory D. Hager from Johns Hopkins University, a real authority in the field, to give a keynote.
