In Lautner’s vision of healthcare, artificial intelligence is work in every area of healthcare.

According to Christian Lautner of the Berlin startup incubator Flying Health, today's medicine covers at most ten percent of what we understand by health.

AI taking over routine tasks is effectively a way to avoid burnout.

Professor Anja Hennemuth of the Fraunhofer MEVIS research institute and the Charité Berlin Institute for Imaging Science and Computational Modelling in Cardiovascular Medicine sees cardiac MRI as an application for self-learning algorithms.

Deep learning is one example for artificial intelligence in healthcare.

Professor Tim Conrad of the Computational Proteomics group at FU Berlin’s Department of Mathematics works on deep learning algorithms to identify proteins in mass spectrometry.

Artificial intelligence was the main focus at the Digital-Gipfel of the German government.

Janek Gröhl of the Division of Computer Assisted Medical Interventions headed by Professor Lena Maier-Hein of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg foresees an era of “surgical data science.”
