Hack Aotearoa - Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Conference and Datathon 2023
Pullman Hotel and UoA, Auckland
Friday 17 Mar 2023 - Sunday 19 Mar 2023
The event will take place in Auckland on Friday March 17th to Sunday March 19th 2023 with a conference day at the Pullman Hotel followed by a datathon at the University of Auckland. It’s being held in partnership with MIT Critical Data and hosted by the Faculty of Medical Health Science at the University of Auckland, and the Division of Health Sciences at Otago University.
Hack Aotearoa is connected to a global network of MIT Critical Data Datathons held internationally. The proposed theme of Hack Aotearoa 2023 is Mahitahi – partnerships and collaboration.
Digital health and data science is a key enabler for transformations within health systems, organisations, and models of care - we aim to bring together health professionals, technologists and data scientists to develop a greater understanding of the respective fields, the opportunities to improve health outcomes and equity, showcase Māori and Pacific data and digital innovation, and learn collaboratively through a datathon event. The datathon will utilise the MIMIC critical care dataset, and COVID-19 aggregated data exploring health inequities, epidemiology of COVID-19, and the impact of policies.
Importantly, in our commitment to equity and diversity over half of the proposed plenary speakers are Māori, Pacific, or women. Furthermore, we aim to support equitable registration fees to make the event more affordable for students, nurses, allied health workers, midwives and other health professionals ($100 registration fee for a three day event).
To bring the event to fruition we are seeking sponsorship. Hack Aotearoa is an exciting opportunity to advance the data and digital innovation landscape in Aotearoa and we hope you can support us to achieve this goal.
