COVID-19 has seriously affected numerous countries in the world from various aspects. These aspects are mainly attributed to medical conditions in terms of insufficient medical care, hospital capacity overload, personnel shortage for primary care assessment & treatment, etc. Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays an important role in medical assessment, imaging, epidemic prediction, epidemiology spread, treatment development and telemedicine particularly in primary care. This webinar will provide data and personal experience in terms of AI and COVID 19 pandemic and also could raise several points for future pandemic and endemic spreads.

Educational aims

  • AI for clinical assessment (radiology, co-morbidities, drug development, algorithm)
  • AI for epidemiological prediction
  • AI -telemedicine for primary care medical care


  • The role of AI in epidemiological prediction of future pandemics or endemic outbreaks
  • AI for drug development
  • Telemedicine for medical care in primary care: Lessons from Covid 19

Target audience

  • Clinicians
  • Trainees
  • Epidemiologists
  • Health professionals

Learning outcomes

Following this webinar, participants will be able to understand how AI and machines could help us in various aspects to improve either the epidemiological prediction or/and the clinical assessment in future pandemics and endemic outbreaks.
