Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of modern life. Just ask Siri or Alexa. From training to computer-aided diagnostics to predictive analytics, there are many opportunities to leverage AI technology to deploy more precise, efficient and impactful interventions at exactly the right moment during a patient’s care.


The 2019 AGA Tech Summit, to be held April 10-12, in San Francisco, will explore the potential impact AI will have on gastroenterologists and how other potentially disruptive technologies are poised to be the engine that drives improvement across the care continuum. Sushovan Guha, MD, PhD, University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix, will moderate sessions focusing on:


    • Computer-aided diagnosis of colorectal polyps.


    • Predicting early colorectal cancer by machine learning.


    • The use of predictive analytics in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).



These sessions will be followed by industry perspectives on the clinical application of AI in the endoscope, auxiliary devices and software programs.

The Tech Summit will continue to hold two of its popular programs for entrepreneurs/innovators — AGA Shark Tank and the Innovator Package. The deadline for Shark Tank applications is Feb. 1, 2019.
