Prepare for more AI at RSNA 2019

The 2019 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago is expanding its artificial intelligence offerings.

At this year’s meeting, the AI Showcase will be located in a new, larger space on a lower level in the North building to create a “central hub” for AI-related activities. The “one-stop AI destination” will feature more than 100 AI companies (25% more than 2018), the AI Showcase Theater hosting 39 presentations, a hands-on deep learning classroom and demonstrations of emerging AI technologies.

“Many RSNA meeting attendees seek out AI subject matter,” said Steve Drew, RSNA assistant executive director of scientific assembly, informatics and corporate relations, in a prepared statement. “Creating an encompassing showcase on artificial intelligence for exhibitors, educators and researchers will create a dynamic environment for our attendees.”

“High interest by commercial companies and meeting attendees led to this exciting development,” said John Jaworski, CEM, director: meetings and exhibition services of RSNA.

RSNA 2019 will take place Dec. 1-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
