On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science,

An Invitation to join a Science & Innovation Dialogues event:


“Machine Learning in Healthcare: Towards a New Human-Machine Partnership”


We’d like to invite you to join our second Science & Innovation Dialogue, an online scientific debate organised by the UK Science and Innovation Network, the British Council, and UNESCO’s International Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence, on the topic of “Machine Learning in Healthcare: Towards a new human-machine partnership”, on 11 February 2022 starting at 1600 GMT/1700 CET/1800 EET.

The keynote speaker at the event will be Prof Mihaela van der Schaar, the John Humphrey Plummer Professor of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Medicine at the University of Cambridge.

Mihaela will be joined by a panel of five distinguished European experts for a roundtable discussion on the use of AI in healthcare. 

She will be joined by the following speakers from across Europe:

  • Prof Cigdem Gunduz Demir, Koc University (Turkey)
  • Prof Katarzyna Kolasa, Kozminski University (Poland)
  • Prof Arvydas Laurinavicius, Vilnius University (Lithuania)
  • Dr Dean Palejev, Sofia University (Bulgaria)
  • Dr Miklós Szócska, Semmelweis University (Hungary)

The event takes place on the International Day of Women and Girls in Science and the speakers will also speak about how they encourage girls to engage more with the world of science. 

This will be the second event in a series of three “Science & Innovation Dialogues” our organisations will be jointly running on the theme of Artificial Intelligence, across ten countries in the Baltics, Central and Eastern, and Southern Europe. The series aims to highlight science excellence in the UK and in this region and to facilitate the exchange of best practices.

The three events look at the intersection of AI and climate change (see the recording of the event here), health (February), and education (3 March 2022).
