lennox hall | 8:30AM - 1:30PM ET

keeping Canada a leader in public health care

Already known for its  strengths in AI research and discovery — as well as advanced medical discovery and digital government – Toronto is emerging as one of the world’s leading centres for using AI to improve health care.

Ontario has the opportunity to focus its formidable resources in machine learning, biotechnology and computational medicine to accelerate discovery and applied innovation. This will drive exciting breakthroughs in drugs, genomics, precision medicine and management of health resources to benefit the world. 

But to do that, we must understand precisely where we lead and advance targeted investments in technology, partnerships and the attraction of human talent to lead health care’s AI revolution.

Join us at The Data Effect in Toronto to be at the nexus of AI and health to help keep Canada a leader in public health care.
