Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is a great pleasure indeed for us to welcome you to the 4th Annual International Conference and Exhibition on Indonesian Medical Education and Research Institute (ICE on IMERI 4.0) 2019, to be held in Jakarta, November 3–6, 2019. The theme of ICE on IMERI 4.0 is “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data in Medical Science, Education and Health Care”.

This year’s event will focus on AI and big data, a new trend that is reshaping the way we think about the world. Previously, data was limited to spreadsheets or databases. Now though, advances in storage and analytics mean that technology can capture, store and work with many different types of data. Big data now is continually evolving and being reconsidered, as it remains the driving force behind many ongoing waves of digital transformation, including artificial intelligence (AI), data science and the internet of things. AI has been emerging newcomer and act as an effective tool to build the platform for ingesting, analyzing and providing recommendation for wide issues including health care. The analyzed data from population as well as individual patient may help physician to build more accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment in clinical decision area. This data can also be used for massive screening and prevention program in community, and assisting in decision making process for policy makers. Considering this advantages of managing big data, a new opportunity is believe to be on the horizon in the knowledge processing tasks for the areas including medical research, education and health care.

The ICE on IMERI 4.0 will bring together, a multi-disciplinary group of all professions involved in the field, including academy to policy makers, researchers, clinicians, technocrats and also industries and digital platform companies or other related professions to present and exchange ideas relating to AI and big data in medical science. While the program comprises main symposia, pre-post congress workshop and research expo, I would like to invite all prospective attendees for this occasion. I hope you will have productive days of interesting and stimulating discussions and collaboration.

We are ready to welcome you to share these experiences together, in the scientific atmosphere of Universitas Indonesia and dynamic city of Jakarta.

Warm regards,
