This 90-minute event will bring together partners in the community — federal government, Department of Defense, academia and industry — to explore the role of AI in real-world health care settings. Experts will discuss scenarios, case studies and the challenges of operationalizing AI, including those associated with responding to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The event is organized by APL’s National Health Mission Area. It will feature Sezin Palmer, National Health Mission Area Executive, discussing APL’s envisioned future for health; and Ashley Llorens, chief of the Intelligent Systems Center at APL, discussing AI in health care.

Adam Cohen, MD, Health Technologies program manager for APL’s National Health Mission Area, will moderate a discussion on the challenges of operationalizing AI in health. Panel members include:

  • Gioel Molinari, President, Butterfly Network
  • M. Brandon Westover, MD, Director, Massachusetts General Hospital’s Data Animation Center & Critical Care EEG Monitoring Service

The event will also feature an interview about an interactive, Web-based dashboard created by a small team at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore that has become one of the world’s most authoritative sources for the latest coronavirus numbers and trends.

Conducted by Erin Hahn, a national security analyst at the Laboratory, the interview will feature Lauren Gardner, associate professor of civil and systems engineering at Johns Hopkins University and architect of the JHU COVID-19 Dashboard; and APL’s Aaron Katz, who leads a team of data analysts at the Laboratory supporting the dashboard.
