    • 13:00 - 15:00 OMHU: 3 Tech Talks on Digital Healthcare
      13.10 - 13.40: Trust and explainability: How to build trustworthy AI for dermatology
      We increasingly rely on algorithms to fastrack our lives - from healthcare and banking, to the smartphone in your pocket citing your latest Netflix recommendation.
      If we look at dermatology, convolutional neural networks have the potential to improve diagnostic accuracy. But if we are to trust algorithms to make decisions for us - and our health - we need to understand the reasoning behind a particular diagnosis. 
      Machine Learning Researcher Raluca Jalaboi is working to solve just that. Join us for a talk on the potentials, barriers, and pitfalls in letting AI systems take care of our skin - and how we can build trust into the models. 

      Speaker: Raluca Jalaboi, Machine Learning Researcher and Industrial PhD student at Omhu

      13.50 - 14.20: Digital dermatology: Your algorithm is ready to see you
      Skin diseases are among the most common medical conditions. Given its visual nature, dermatology is well-positioned to leverage Machine Learning and imaging technology when diagnosing, managing, and treating skin conditions.
      Find out how Machine Learning models can lend a helping hand in digital dermatology with Lead Machine Learning Engineer Martin Aastrup Olsen

      Speaker: Martin Aastrup Olsen, Lead Machine Learning Engineer at Omhu

      14.30 - 15.00: Digital innovation is ready for healthcare - does healthcare feel the same?
      Health tech is in the fast lane, with promises of transforming unsustainable health systems into more sustainable ones by letting digital solutions do some of the heavy lifting. 
      Despite the great strides in digital innovation, healthcare has been notoriously slow at adopting new technologies compared to other sectors. 
      Join dermatologist Andrei Chiriac and Engineering Manager Kevin Pelgrims in a discussion on the impact of digitisation on the work of doctors, what we can do to address barriers in health tech adoption, and how doctors and developers at Omhu are working side by side to unite healthcare and tech to build meaningful solutions.
