6.2.2019: “Women in Digital Health” presents: “Medical Software Systems Using Artificial Intelligence: Lessons Learned and Prospects” by Susanne Suter (SCS)

Very excited to announce that our next guest speaker will be Susanne Suter, Project Manager and Software Engineer at Supercomputing Systems, with the topic “Medical Software Systems Using Artificial Intelligence: Lessons Learned and Prospects “.

1st part: Susanne will tell us how she became the lead of multidisciplinary innovative projects at the interface between computer science, biology and medicine and how she became a mentor at “Super Computing Sisters: Women in Engineering”.

2st part:

Today, medical systems produce large amounts of signals, images and other health-related information. Hence, there is a great potential to provide health professionals with software tools based on these data sets. At Supercomputing Systems, Susanne was involved in a number of medical software systems such as a web tool for ophthalmological tumor analysis, a patient monitoring system at a neuro-intensive-care-unit, or web-platforms for second-opinion-reviewing systems for ultrasound hip condition diagnosis and ophthalmologic tissue conditions. During her talk, Susanne presents these medical software systems and how they aggregate data and make use of artificial intelligence. In particular, she highlights the lessons learned and prospects of using artificial intelligence for medical software systems.

3rd part: Networking apéro (sponsored by Supercomputing Systems AG), enjoy snacks, drinks, and get to know other people in digital health

Join us at that event and be inspired!
