Artificial Intelligence @ ECR 2019

The topic on everyone's lips in the lead up to ECR 2019 is Artificial Intelligence (AI), and we have your AI needs covered with a huge range of content on machine learning, deep learning, big data and much more.

Interactive exhibits, theatres, trainings and a plethora of scientific sessions will be devoted to AI at this year's congress. Read on below to find out exactly what we have in store to help you learn deep at ECR 2019.

The Artificial Intelligence Exhibition (AIX)


Making its grand debut at ECR 2019, the Artificial Intelligence Exhibition (AIX) will bring AI to the heart of the technical exhibition.

The AIX is the best place to explore how machine learning, deep learning and big data are reshaping medical imaging and to find out what the future holds. Meet the innovative SMEs at the forefront of the field, take in sessions on the big issues at the AIX Theatre, and start your very own AI adventure thanks to self-paced training provided by NVIDIA's Deep Learning Institute.

Whether you're exploring radiological AI for the first time, researching it, or just want to chat about the future over a free juice at the artistic Algorithms Bar, the AIX (located in the X1 hall) is a must visit at ECR 2019!

The AIX is Proudly Supported by
