Suchi Saria, PhD
You’ll be glad you saw Suchi because...
She’s a researcher and entrepreneur focused on how to bring AI to the bedside—ethically and effectively.
Haunted by thoughts that AI might have saved the life of her young nephew, if the technology had been out of development and in doctors’ hands, she’s determined to grow AI into practical, clinical tools.
She balances her zeal for AI with a wary respect for its risks: How transparent are AI algorithms? How do we ensure AI complements clinicians’ skills, rather than compounding human bias?
Suchi’s insightful mix of enthusiasm and caution will upgrade your intelligence about artificial intelligence.
