Ger Janssen

a.i. Department Head AI, Data Science & Digital Twin

Ger Janssen has a PhD in Applied Physics from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. He joined Philips in 2001 in the computational modeling domain, and later started to focus on AI and hybrid intelligence, combining AI with computational modeling. He was head of the AI, Data Science & Digital Twin department in Philips Research until July, and currently Principal Scientist Data & AI, supporting Philips businesses in bringing new innovative AI enabled solutions to the market, including the hot topic of Generative AI. For these activities the guiding principle is that all Philips solutions should address the quadruple aim: better health outcome, better patient and staff satisfaction against lower costs.



Generative AI is revolutionizing the way industries operate, presenting exciting opportunities and challenges that transcend traditional boundaries. As a leader in his field, Ger Janssen, Department Head of AI, Data Science & Digital Twin at Philips is looking forward to discussing his personal insights of how generative AI is shaping the future at Philips. From documentation improvement to healthcare solutions, Ger will share real-world examples of how Philips has implemented generative AI and what challenges he has encountered in this journey. He will also touch on the ethical considerations that arise when developing and utilizing AI models. How does Philips make sure to use AI practices responsible, to ensure an unbiased and ethically sound decision-making process? And how do you ensure your company’s standards on ethics when purchasing third party models?
