According to the latest statistics of World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death globally. During the last decade, its mortality rate is still the highest among all diseases (like tumors). With the fast development of machine learning (AI) techniques and vast amount of medical data, physicians and machine learning scientists can work together to enable AI capability in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. This workshop will bring together physicians, technicians and machine learning scientists to discuss the latest progressions.
