Informatics for Life meets eCardiology

IFL Scientists presented interactive workshops

This year, our scientists were again actively involved as part of the eCardiology section at the annual meeting of the German Society for Cardiology in Mannheim. In addition to the many exciting lectures at the conference, they presented workshops and demonstrations on digital topics in medicine in the modern ambience of the Ella & Louis. Anyone who wanted could immerse oneself in the virtual world with AR glasses or test various mobile sensors and find out about their benefits. New useful apps, a demonstration of ChatGPT and even genetic sequencing could be tried out with the help of a cleverly constructed Lego model. Illustrative models familiarised visitors with 3D printing and lifelike simulations in cardiac surgery.

You can see a small selection of what was presented here in the video by Dr. Heart (from minute 8:00).


Symposium HEALTHY AI

AI meets Medicine: Promises and limits

In a relaxed atmosphere in the common room of the mathematical institute, this topic was discussed in various facets and from different perspectives.

Whether the topic was “Model-driven or Data-driven” or the question was “Games, Gadgets or AI: What will transform our lives?” – the discussions were stimulated by short keynote speeches and then actively discussed in the auditorium.

The keynote by Professor Steven Niederer (King’s College London) on the topic of “Computational Modeling: Prime time for the clinics” was also discussed controversially and was a real highlight.

Finally the speakers and the audience argued about what is already possible – Real-world implementation of data science and AI.

All day long the posters from this year’s competition were issued. The best placed won the Informatics for Life Award which was given for the third time.

Congratulate to this year’s winner, Malte Tölle.

New professorship “Precision Digital Health”

Our PI Benjamin Meder has accepted the call to the W3 professorship “Precision Digital Health” at Heidelberg University. As part of the research professorship, his focus is on molecular and digital biomarkers, the use of artificial intelligence in everyday clinical practice and wearables.
