ICAI Launch Pad Career Café: A career in the health-related domain

ICAI Launch Pad:

ICAI has initiated the Launch Pad together with the Netherlands AI Coalition with the aim to connect AI talent with organizations in the Dutch ecosystem by providing a matchmaking process between AI-PhD students and Dutch companies looking for AI talent. There are no costs involved for the students. We do this on a non-profit basis.

We believe that the Netherlands offers great opportunities in the field of AI for our top AI experts. In this November edition, we focus on career choices and options in the health-related domain.

“Research between academia and industry, the best of both worlds?”

In the last year I have been working on a few topics in the realm of medical AI, in collaborations between industrial and academic colleagues. In this talk I will be discussing some personal experiences, tally advantages and disadvantages of industrial vs academic settings, and discuss what is the landscape of opportunities in today’s medical AI research community.
