Join the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Student Society(AIMSS)

AIMSS is a newly formed organization run by students representing various departments from the faculties of Engineering, Medicine, Science, as well as others. Their goal is to facilitate discussion and learning with regard to the role artificial intelligence plays in medical research and clinical practice and how one can become more involved in this exciting and emerging field.

AIMSS hosts a monthly talk from experts in the field in a relaxed environment with refreshments and aim to arrange computer science workshops related to the medical field later on in the academic year in addition to a symposium.
