Last week, the Rochester entrepreneurial community hosted Saint Paul-native Pete Kane and the Silicon Valley Artificial Intelligence (SVAI) meetup group to talk about artificial intelligence (AI) and healthcare. SVAI is the largest AI community in the Bay Area, creating a community of researchers working and passionate about AI. Cultivating a stronger relationship between their strong Silicon Valley-based AI hub and the engrained research and medical expertise here in Rochester is one of the major goals of SVAI this year.
AI is all around us, whether we recognize it or not. AI is used in video games, speech recognition tools, and autonomous cars. AI could potentially change healthcare as we know it.
