Future Medicine Science Match 2020

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE

7 November 2020                               *** This Year As Digital Edition ***


In recent years, the Futue Medicine Science Match has become one of the most exciting annual events in terms of medical innovations and visions for the future of translational medicine. In 2020, for the fifth time now, the Berlin Institute of Health and the publishing house Der Tagesspiegel will continue this story, together with Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC).
Each year, 800 guests or more attended the talks of 60 to 80 rising stars of science from innovative research institutions in Berlin, Germany, and the world. Only in one day, the speakers presented cutting-edge projects in the area of Digital Health and Translational Medicine, showing how their work will turn advances in life science research into benefits for patients and people.

This year we aim at highlighting the advancements in the field of artificial intelligence in translational medicine.
The three key topics of Future Medicine Science Match 2020 on 7 November will be:

  • AI and Basic Medical Research
  • AI and Decision Making in Medicine
  • AI and SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19

The core of our Science Matches is a series of fast-paced 3-minute short talks. Top scientists from leading Berlin institutions and international partners will present their pioneering work and how it will change the future of medicine.

Because of the Corona Pandemic, we will hold the Science Match as a digital event this year and are truly looking forward to the new virtual setting and to an extended outreach. There will be a livestream, where pitches alternate with keynote, interview and debate, and an event website, where pre-produced pitches and other content can be accessed before, during and after the livestream. Participant action and interaction plays a major role, so there will be opportunities to comment, vote, ask questions, discuss and network.

If you are interested in contributing a short talk presenting your AI research project, please note our
Call for Short Abstracts. The extended submission deadline is 18 October 2020.

We look forward to your participation!
