A full-day virtual event dedicated to COVID-19 will bring together a top-level faculty on 29 April, 2021, to share the latest advances, data and best practices relating to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.

The event has been developed in collaboration with the European Respiratory Society (ERS) as part of the DRAGON IMI project, which launched in 2020 with the aim of using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to support precise coronavirus diagnosis and prognosis.

Chaired by Professors Christopher Brightling and Eva Polverino, the programme will consist of live presentations which discuss the disease, from basic science to the post-care of COVID-19 patients, with a focus on the increasing role of big data in the diagnosis and prognosis of the disease.

Professor Christopher Brightling commented: “The application of digital imaging together with clinical data to inform clinical decisions through artificial intelligence is very exciting.  The DRAGON project offers to do this as part of our response to the pandemic. This event brings together world-leaders tackling COVD-19 and explores how different digital approaches to big data will help us to defeat the pandemic.”

Registration for the event costs €20 and grants access to the full live programme as well as to all recorded materials until 31 December, 2021.
