  • Discuss strategies to build partnerships and collaborations among clinicians and scientists.
  • Explore AI data collection, including ethical, legal, and social implications. 
  • Analyze clinical and translational AI applications that can reach more diverse patient populations and improve the safety, efficacy, and quality of healthcare.
