Fraunhofer MEVIS at Lübeck Summer Academy 2020

June 23, 2020

For the ninth time, partners from science and industry discuss hot topics in medical technology at the Lübeck Summer Academy (LSA) on June 24, 2020. This year, regulatory affairs for medical devices, artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL), and cybersecurity are in the focus of the meeting. Due to the coronavirus pandemic LSA 2020 is held online.

The session on AI and DL is organized in cooperation with Fraunhofer MEVIS. A growing number and variety of novel medical devices are based on learning algorithms and AI. With the ability to learn and adapt continuously, these devices pose new challenges to regulation and validation and allow new business models. Consequently, legal frameworks are being prepared at European and national level trying to combine technological excellence and trust. New ecosystems emerge that facilitate the distribution and commercialization of novel algorithmic solutions.

Our session on AI and DL will present novel technological applications, and will shed light on these developments. Fraunhofer MEVIS researcher Bianca Lassen-Schmidt will give a presentation on the role of Computed Tomography (CT) and AI in the context of COVID-19. The session will conclude with a round table discussion on technological and legal aspects of health AI.
