As part of our Algorithmic Bias Initiative, CAAI is excited to devote our annual conference to further efforts toward combatting algorithmic bias across domains. This year, we are focusing on the healthcare industry, and along with the Healthcare Initiative at Chicago Booth, will bring together healthcare professionals in industry and policy to advance the conversation around mitigating algorithmic bias to improve health outcomes. 


Join fellow practitioners from industry-leading healthcare organizations to share organizational and technical strategies to combat bias. Hear from policymakers and regulators interested in developing a shared understanding of how to best create a policy framework for responsible AI in healthcare. Don't miss the Conference on Applied AI 2022: Responsible AI in Healthcare, in Chicago and online, April 4-5.
