This session is the second in a series of national virtual discussions designed to bring together partners in the community — federal government, Department of Defense, academia and industry — to explore the role of artificial intelligence in real-world health care settings.

ElZarrad will brief the FDA’s work in operationalizing AI in health, and APL Senior National Security Analyst Erin Hahn will lead a discussion on current events and their impact on operationalizing AI in health.

APL’s 2020 National Health Virtual Speaker Series will include a third event in August and a two-day symposium in September, continuing the Laboratory’s exploration of Operationalizing AI in Health. Additional information on topics and registration for those events will be released soon.
