The 2020 HiPerGator Symposium focuses on active research applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) at UF. Providing the keynote is Azra Bihorac, MD, MS, FCCM, FASN, the R. Glenn Davis Professor of Medicine, Surgery and Anesthesiology.

“I am excited about participating in HiPerGator Symposium this year,” wrote Bihorac. “Since it is set up as a virtual platform, it will be unique and in many ways an enriching experience. Our research group brings cutting edge AI in the context of highly meaningful medical research for critically ill patients. I am excited to invigorate post-doctoral and graduate students at UF about our research and inspire them to join us.”

Dr. Bihorac’s research focus is on using rapid analytic techniques and AI to optimize the care of the unstable patient in real time, and advancing translational studies linking basic aspects of critical illness and surgical injury to clinical outcomes. She leads Precision and Intelligence in Medicine (PrismaP), a multidisciplinary research partnership of experts in the fields of data science and clinical informatics, and precision medicine in engineering and medicine.

Registration for the 2020 HiPerGator Symposium is free and open to the UF community: https://informatics.research.ufl.edu/hipergator-symposium-2020-registration/.
