The framework for the Summit is based on idea generation, facilitated discussion, and innovative science. Through comprehensive conversations, participants explore opportunities for the use of AI in early detection, with a goal of defining new pathways toward a protocol. The Summit took place over a two-day period, with each session designed to build upon the others.
Prior to the Summit, each participating expert worked within a group to develop an in-depth analysis on one of the following interrelated topics:
- Progress, Problems, and Prospects of Early Detection
- AI and Machine Learning
- AI and Early Detection of Pancreatic Cancer – Current Efforts
- Collaborative Opportunities
- Moving Forward: Reflections from Government, Industry, and Advocacy
The resulting pre-Summit paper Artificial Intelligence and Early Detection of Pancreatic Cancer provided a landscape of current efforts in the field, an analysis of gaps, and ideas for innovation and opportunity.
