Past AI Events at Mount Sinai

Wednesday, July 12th, 2023

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EDT) via Zoom

Generative AI in Education and Research: Exploring Applications, Strengths, and Impact

Join us for the first event in the Faculty Development Series on Generative AI in Research and Education. Dr. Thomas Fuchs, Mount Sinai's Dean for Artificial Intelligence and Human Health, will guide us through the foundational aspects of AI, its applications, strengths, and impact on learning and research in health.

After this webinar participants will be able to:

  • describe how generative AI models are produced, evaluated, and used in education and research
  • assess the potential and drawbacks of using AI in their own work

This session is open to the entire Mount Sinai community. We encourage faculty from all disciplines to attend and gain valuable insights into the transformative power of AI in education and research.

Artificial Intelligence in Medicine

Curious about AI technology and its application in medicine?
Wondering how AI will augment your ability to practice medicine in the future?
Want to learn how to distinguish between the hype and the real impact of AI in medicine?

Join our Nexus course (meets 1 hr/week) to get an overview of the current landscape, understand the benefits and limitations of AI in medicine, and critically evaluate AI models in research literature and in clinical settings. By the end of the course, you'll be able to: describe common terminology in AI (i.e. machine learning, model training, inference), understand common machine learning models used in medical AI, evaluate technical and ethical considerations in AI for health, and identify medical/healthcare problems where AI could be useful.
