The School of Nursing recognizes the power of artificial intelligence (AI) that will increasingly impact patients, families and communities as well as nurses, nursing education and nursing research. The uses of AI and other technologies are directly related to the Quadruple Aim, and are accelerating innovation and processes, affecting clinical decision-making and impacting costs. While nurses should understand how AI is utilized in patient care, evidence points to only 15% to 20% of end users are using it to drive changes in the delivery of patient care.

Are you prepared? Is nursing prepared? Leading researchers in the field will be attending the 2020 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME 2020) in Minneapolis, Aug. 26-29, hosted by School of Nursing. Assistant Professor Martin Michalowski, PhD, conference co-chair and chair of the local organizing committee, led the effort to bring this conference to North America for the first time.

Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME), a leading international society on the theory, methodology and applications of AI to solve difficult problems in medicine and health, has held bi-annual conferences in Europe for over 35 years. The AIME 2020 conference in Minneapolis will consist of invited speakers from academia and the private sector, paper presentations, workshops and a doctoral consortium that will cover a broad range of topics including big data analytics, machine learning, data mining, natural language processing and workflow management.

This pioneering AIME conference will be a transformative moment in unifying the AI in medicine communities from North America and the rest of the world, as well as lifting up the University of Minnesota and state of Minnesota as research leaders in the field and as an innovation hub in transforming health care.
