The emphasis in AI is on replicating human performance. Examples abound: ImageNet, self-driving cars, etc. It’s the same in medicine. Daniel Russakoff explains how Voxeleron LLC is working on what’s next—AI algorithms that do things that humans can’t, such as the prediction of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) progression, critical to successful treatment of this leading cause of vision loss.

This keynote is sponsored by Dell Technologies.
