Summary of AI innovation Sessions: Medtech – 25th of January
On the 25th of January the first session took place, covering the topic: ‘Discover the potential of AI’. During the event, Martijn van Grieken – Gimix, Koen Bonenkamp – Autoscriber, David Rijlaarsdam & Bas Vet – DEMCON and Marlou Gielen – FruitPunch AI for Health spoke about their experiences and each showed AI user cases. Hence, it came clear that AI can be implemented in multiple ways. Think about disease detection, improving the performance of existing technology, supporting medical decisions and much more.
In the end, a panel discussion was held, where interesting questions arose. AI is relevant, but how do you introduce it to your company? What are the focus points? What is the main barrier?
One thing became clear very quickly: data is for sure the most important asset.
For example, Martijn told that the whole process of AI is the biggest obstacle. Decisions about which model you use, how you gather your data and how to make your data trustworthy without biasing, all influences this process. It needs to be very well managed, cause also topics like ethics and privacy play a role. “Be thorough!”
AI can improve a lot, but is not necessarily the solution for everything. So speak to persons about AI, don’t be afraid to reach out and “Do not be afraid to try it out” told David. In addition, Marlou said that developing your knowledge in a safe environment is really important to keep inspiring yourself.
Koen even advised to take a course about how neural networks work: “If you understand the basics, you can even better understand the applied cases.”
