MVLS hosts iCAIRD’s Glasgow launch event

In March 2019, the College was delighted to host the sold out Glasgow launch of the Industrial Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research in Digital Diagnostics (iCAIRD), as part of 2019’s Datafest.

The launch event introduced iCAIRD, describing its background and intent, which organisations are involved, and what iCAIRD is funded to do over the coming three years. Together, a panel of experts described the vision of what overwhelming iCAIRD success would look like, and encouraged clinicians, academics and industry partners to propose additional projects that could benefit from the iCAIRD infrastructure and framework.
