The Symposium on Artificial Intelligence for Learning Health Systems (SAIL) is an annual international conference exploring the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques into clinical medicine. SAIL will be held in Puerto Rico on May 7–10, 2024.
An explicit goal of this conference is to foster collaboration between methodologists and key healthcare decision makers such as clinicians, hospital administrators, regulators and payors. SAIL will feature leading voices from each of these backgrounds to shed light on opportunities for and obstacles to the deployment of clinical AI systems.
A second key goal of SAIL is to better integrate the complementary experience of the clinical informatics and machine learning communities. Clinical informaticians, for their part, have an extensive history of integrating their tools within hospital IT systems and working with administrators, privacy policies, and quality improvement officers. Computer scientists, for their part, have frequently spearheaded the development of novel methodological tools and high-performance computing. SAIL is designed to bring together the best of each of these closely related but often disconnected communities.(more…)
