Following the unprecedented success of the first AI Fertility conference that took place in Dubrovnik, Croatia in September 2022, and by popular demand, we are delighted to announce the inception of this new human fertility society. The AIFS (AI Fertility Society) will raise debate, push human interest and help shape the growth and development of Augmented Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence, robotics, big data systems and future tech in the field of human reproduction.
As a society, we will continue to have biennial in-person conferences. In the interim year, we will aim for a virtual conference. Planning for the next in-person conference is already underway for September 2024, nestled in the grounds of one of Croatia’s most impressive national parks.
