2020 IADR/AADR/CADR GENERAL SESSIONThe 98th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 18-21, 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA. Due to COVID 19 and the world pandemic, the meeting had to be canceled, but we were able to collect some of the science that was planned for presentation to be available to our members as part of an on demand meeting.
The recordings in this library are a selection of the science that was to be presented onsite at the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, IADR Centennial Plenaries and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.
This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles
SESSION DESCRIPTIONArtificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly accelerating science that is suddenly beome an integral part of our daily activities. It has incredible potential to change the world and our jobs, despite being poorly understood by most. This plenary will present basic definitions (machine learning) and introduce concepts upon which AI is based (neural networks, algorithms, and fuzzy logic systems), present the 3 major levels of AI operations (analytical, decision-making, mimicked human thinking [AGI], …), provide current examples (Siri assistants, autonomous driving, computer assisted medical diagnostics), and demonstrate rapidly evolving healthcare applications with grand potential (advanced diagnostics, personal assistance for practitioners, computerized surgery, and personalized health care). Because of rapidly advancing support for large computer systems (5G, Cloud operations, quantum computing), the expansion of AI should be exponential in the next few years. This will also have major impacts on the process of organizing, conducting, and publishing research.
- Attendees will be able to identify the major levels of AI operations.
- Attendees will be able to identify ways that AI will transform research operations.
- Attendees will be able to indicate a way that AI may immediately facilitate their own research enterprise.
