About this event

For many universities in London, September 20-24 is the start of the academic year. It is also London Tech Week. To celebrate the city's tech community and get new students involved, we have put together a great lineup of speakers at the cutting edge of healthcare technology. 

Health-centred technology is among the fastest growing industries in the world and a major locus of research. Machine learning, artificial intelligence and other technologies that once appeared to be mere novelties have instead become almost commonplace. Now, the long arm of technological advance is touching new areas of medical science including drug discovery, oncological imaging and robotic surgery.  In this event, we explore the deepening intersection of health and technology in the age of COVID-19.
