About

SSIMA:Med  brings together residents and specialists, and leading innovators in medical technology, combining expertise on the latest technological breakthroughs with practical, hands-on experience and know-how.

Topics

Medical professionals who participate, will take advantage of receiving knowledge on the latest technologies related to Artificial Intelligence and radiology, from the same persons who are pushing the limits of the state-of-the-art globally. Their questions, from either theoretical or practical perspectives, will be answered, and all participants will engage in practical sessions involving Artificial Intelligence in their field (the “hands-on AI sessions”). To top it all off, there will be a substantial amount of time available for engaging in networking during the breaks and social events, as well as cross-over activities throughout the week with participants from SSIMA TECH and SSIMA INDUSTRY.
