Sorbonne University and Heidelberg University join forces to organise the first workshop on AI in medicine under the 4EU+ European University Alliance.

The aim of the three-day workshop, held from September 11th to 13th 2024, is to bring together researchers in the field of machine learning for an information exchange in the field of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine. The topic of the first workshop is "Optimised Trials with Machine Learning". This involves the use of machine learning methods in randomised clinical studies in order to obtain better statistical information about interventions or diagnostic procedures. Recent progress in this field is presented by internationally recognized researchers from Sorbonne and Heidelberg but also from other institutions such as the 4EU+ Alliance member universities.

The audience will comprise a diverse group of PhD students from the fields of medicine, biology, and computer science. The event has 40 seats available, with 10 reserved for participants from 4EU+ members and the remaining 30 allocated to students from Heidelberg University and Sorbonne University.
