Austin Forum–Dell Medical School April Update

Posted on: March 3, 2017

Austin Forum on Technology and Society presents topics and encourages discussions, collaborations and new technology partnerships to address leading edge topics in health & medicine, business and industry, science and research, education, government, entertainment and social good. The topic for the Tuesday, April 4, 2017 Austin Forum is “Dell Medical School Update: The Role of Technology in Transforming Healthcare.”

Dr. Mini Kahlon, Vice Dean for Strategy & Partnerships at the Dell Medical School, will provide a Dell Medical School Update as a follow-up to her hugely informative and successful presentation in early 2016. As a re-invention of what a medical school can be, Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is taking on the vision of creating a new health ecosystem achieved through vital and inclusive strategies that are community based and focused. Dell Medical is a ground-up reinvention of what a medical school can bring to educate future health professionals, patient care, and transform healthcare through innovation.

With strategic leadership, innovation, discovery and collaboration, Dell Medical can realize its grand vision and embrace the vital and transforming power of technology to help achieve its mission and purpose. Teaching and training future healthcare professionals in how they can use technology when treating their patients or doing research is a large part of what differentiates our medical school from others.

Come hear from Dr. Mini Kahlon and learn how Dell Medical is working with technologies, technology innovators, and the Austin tech sector to assist in achieving its grand vision of a vital, inclusive healthcare system that serves as a model for the nation.

Earlier this week there was an Austin Forum on: “Artificial Intelligence: How Deep Learning Is Advancing and Transforming Business, Transportation, Medicine and More.” Many people from UT were in attendance. The event provided discussion and insights into how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the new model for computer research and development. The open source AI frameworks establish Deep Learning as the new model that will change everything from how we interact with our homes to how we drive (or the car drives itself).
