In this keynote, we'll show how the Cancer Moonshot Task Force under Vice President Biden is unleashing the power of data to help end cancer as we know it. We'll discuss global efforts inspired by the Cancer Moonshot that will empower A.I. and deep learning for oncology with larger and more accessible datasets.
There are 14 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million cancer-related deaths worldwide per year.Innovation in the fight against cancer requires a multi-faceted approach. As patients and as stakeholders, healthcare ecosystem experts in genomics, proteomics, imaging, medicine and data sciences are cooperating in new ways. GPU computing, integrated data and novel algorithms enable the use of deep learning and artificial intelligence to transform cancer research and care. Dr. Jerry S.H. Lee, Whitehouse Cancer Moonshot Deputy Director for Research and Technology, will facilitate a thought provoking panel discussion on leveraging Artificial Intelligence to fight cancer.
