What to expect

The recent years have revealed the enormous power of data. In the health sector, broad scale data utilization has been advancing medical knowledge by delivering data-driven discoveries, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.

To further improve people’s lives, health data research revolutions require the adoption of governing regulations and policies to ensure safe and secure health data research. The Data for Health conference aims at bringing together the German, US and international health data and AI community, experts – from science to business –, policy makers and stakeholders to ensure we seize the broad range of opportunities arising from data-driven improvements to health and society. Data for Health will be an invite-only two-day event to spotlight discussions, encourage sharing of best practices regarding health data use and transatlantic access to health data and connect our health data and AI research projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Health.

We are looking forward to inspiring impulses from the following speakers, for example:
