General Statement of Purpose

The scientific and lay press constantly present breaking news on the promise of artificial intelligence to improve the diagnosis and management of myriad health conditions. This activity is comprised of three presentations focusing on distinct areas in AI applications: 1) deep learning for classifying cervical cytology slide images; 2) automatically aligning biomedical ontologies; and 3) predicting adverse drug reactions (ADRs) using multisite health data. Collectively, these innovations have potential for improving patient outcomes and research methods by enhancing efficiency, promoting interoperability, and predicting adverse events to reduce patient morbidity and mortality. The presentations were included on the AMIA 2019 Annual Symposium agenda.

Target audience: Biomedical informatics professionals with an interest in artificial intelligence and its potential application to clinical practice
