DETAILS
This event will offer you an overview of the magnitude of America's opioid epidemic destroying lives & communities across the country using data, case studies, & personal stories that will dispel some of the myths & misinformation around the stigma of opioid use disorder & addiction.

Attendees will then be introduced to how Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as other emerging technologies including machine learning, blockchain & VR, are being used to help all stakeholders on the front lines of the struggle to combat opioid addiction (addicts & their families, medical staff, law enforcement, politicians, educators, businesses, etc.).

Special guest speaker Sam Frons (a recovering addict & tech entrepreneur) will share her inspiring story & present her innovative startup, Addicaid, a personalized addiction recovery app & a collection of AI-enhanced addiction services for addicts & experts, by addicts & experts.

Together, attendees will discuss & tackle the Ohio Opioid Technology Challenge (a global challenge presented by the Ohio Third Frontier Commission seeking new approaches & technology solutions that could help combat the U.S. opioid problem, whether they be from regular citizens or researchers & scientists). Everyone will have an opportunity to share their ideas & everyone is encouraged to participate.
