AI for Life Science @ KTH
In October 2020, KTH’s research platforms on Digitalization and Life Science Technology arranged a daylong digital workshop on artificial intelligence and machine learning for life science, health and care. The aim was to bring together academia, industry and government to imagine and organize a research agenda for AI in Health, for Stockholm and Sweden.
