Topic Synopsis:

Interactive discovery session about what Artificial Intelligence means to you:

What is the first thing that you think of when you hear AI? Could ChatGPT pass the Project Management Professional exam? Could it be used to produce your hospital bill or schedule your next appointment with a healthcare provider? AI has already been used in a Star Wars film and a recent Beatles song release.

Concerns have been raised about technical education in academia in a world with AI available to all, students as well as faculty. Challenges and opportunities abound for both instructional aid and added difficulties in assessing student aptitude.

Can AI help speed up research and inferences in biomedical sciences projects that typically take years? Grad students are the current work engine in biomedical research. The presentation will discuss how their work could be enhanced or changed completely using AI applications.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the benefits and drawbacks or limitations of AI applications in a health care setting

2. Explain how AI is different from data analytics

3. Identify industries that are embracing AI and industries that are opposed to AI

In her second career, she is co-owner of InformAI, a company based in Houston’s Texas Medical Center to provide novel artificial intelligence (AI) applications for medical imaging applications.

She is a proud Aggie alumna, and serves on the Texas A&M Biomedical Engineering Industry Advisory Board. In her spare time, she enjoys being part of the Kingwood/Humble Area Aggie Moms Club, which raises scholarship money for Texas A&M students.

Topic Synopsis:

Interactive discovery session about what Artificial Intelligence means to your profession:

How will AI impact day-to-day projects? Learnings from industry conferences will be shared from the past two years to share the differences in perception in the industry.

The National Science Foundation ICORPS process will be used as a model for customer discovery for any project. Government agency experience with grant writing using this model will be described. FDA guidance on the use of AI will be presented.

ChatGPT will be used to interact with the audience live during the presentation. First-hand experience of practical uses of AI will be explained as well as business models using AI.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify how AI can be used to streamline IT workflows

2. Envision future AI applications and adoption mechanisms

3. Understand funding sources for AI innovation
