AI in orthopaedics…how we unlock the power of AI & big data for the benefit of orthopaedic patients and the NHS.

This was the first national conference dedicated to the role of AI within orthopaedics!

It was designed to cut through the hype and focus on practical ways in which AI, underpinned by Big Data, can be used to benefit patients and the NHS. Speakers included senior clinicians, researchers and technologists actively involved in AI projects within orthopaedics, plus NHS leaders and policy makers.

It provided an opportunity for the wider MSK community to share best practice and identify solutions to common problems.
