Given the international reputation of Dr. Meslin and the contemporary relevance in the midst of a global pandemic of his particular expertise, this event will be organized as a virtual webinar. The title of the talk will be “The Future of Health Care in an AI World,” but Dr. Meslin has promised to use his talk to address specifically recent developments with Covid-19. In additional to the public webinar, Dr. Meslin has agreed to participate in a smaller, invitation-only workshop with IU faculty and students.
