Artificial intelligence promises to improve healthcare. To help medical device companies successfully implement AI, the upcoming Design. Engineer. Build. conference at MD&M West will explore regulations, challenges, and potential strategies.

AI’s role in diagnostics is particularly noteworthy. A report from Verified Market Research tracked the global diagnostic AI market at USD$532.22 Million in 2020 and expects it to hit USD$5371.11 million by 2028. The researcher expects advancements in AI and deep learning to prove more efficient in identifying disease diagnoses over the next few years.

To help medical device designers and engineers make sense of these developments and more, AI will be a hot topic at the upcoming Informa Markets Engineering West Design. Engineer. Build. conference held August 10-11 alongside Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West, WestPack, Automation Technology Expo (ATX) West, Design & Manufacturing (D&M) West, and Plastec West shows. The exhibition runs August 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The conference kicks off August 10 at 8:30 am with the keynote panel discussion, Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Manufacturing – Or Is It? moderated by MD+DI Managing Editor Omar Ford. Panelists include Kevin Goodheart, engagement manager, Siemens Digital Industry Software; Kelly Malone, chief customer officer, Taqtile; and Dave Saunders, chief technology officer & co-founder, Galen Robotics. Held in conference room 210AB, the session will look at:

  • Trends in AI +ML across manufacturing sectors

  • The Love / Hate relationship between AI and big data

  • Implementation challenges including ethics and bias, data quality, levels of autonomy, and the potential for “overtrust” by users

  • How AR/VR hardware are using AI + ML to advance training knowledge to address changes in workforce demographics

  • AI and ML skills engineers need now to be competitive in the marketplace

During this episode, we’re talking about how manufacturers are able to use mixed reality to train their frontline workers, enhance productivity, improve inspections, onboard new employees, and much more.
