CAI-X is now officially open

Both the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and Odense University Hospital (OUH) have been working with AI for years to constantly improve treatment and efficiency to benefit both patients and staff at the hospital.

With the official launch of CAI-X, the centre is now ready to take on the task of paving the way for even more AI projects at OUH and SDU. The launch was a virtual event with 150 participants from both Denmark and abroad.

Bjarne Dahler-Eriksen, Chief Medical Officer at OUH, and Henrik Bindslev, Dean at the Faculty of Engineering, at SDU hosted the event and underlined the shared purpose of hospital staff and engineers to improve treatment and conditions for the patients. New knowledge and new technology is fascinating, but we do not work with technology for the sake of technology, but for the patients. 

Stephanie Lose, Chair of Danish Regions and of The Region of Southern Denmark, opened the event and congratulated hospital and university with yet another fruitful collaboration. The event was also the first chance to meet the new Centre Manager Peter Børker Nielsen and Head of Technical Research Esmaeil Nadimi, and we were introduced to some of the projects where AI plays a key role.
