About this event

Say hi to Mario! Mario, the robot-nurse, will soon start helping out in the distribution of medicines to patients at Mater Dei Hospital. Announced by the Health Minister, Hon. Chris Fearne, the new system is to be fully rolled out by 2021. Welcome to the age of Artificial Intelligence!

Up until a few years ago, the mention of Artificial Intelligence immediately brought to mind images of technology synonymous with science fiction movies. Fast-forward a couple of years, and now everybody knows what Artificial Intelligence is, or has at least come across the term “AI”. We are now starting to truly appreciate the benefits AI is affording us across several application areas. One of these areas is the area of healthcare. This talk is intended to highlight some of these applications.
