Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly accelerating science and has incredible potential to change the world and our jobs. The expansion of AI should be exponential in the next few years and this will have major impacts on the process of organizing, conducting and publishing research. This IADR Centennial Plenary Session will present basic AI definitions and concepts, provide current examples of AI operations and demonstrate the rapidly evolving healthcare applications.

Advances in genomics and deep phenotyping in the field of orofacial clefting research, combined with cell and animal model systems, has revolutionized contemporary thinking and brought us close to true therapeutic approaches. Utilizing the understanding derived from intensive research at the molecular level has provided insights into improved diagnostics for detection of fetal abnormalities and possible molecular tools that have the potential to complement or even replace surgical interventions. This IADR Centennial Plenary Session will present seminal examples of the recent discoveries made in orofacial clefting research described by experts in the field who have championed technologies, analytics and diverse populations in collaborative studies.

Dramatic innovations have occurred over the first 100 years of dental, oral and craniofacial research. Researchers have deciphered the etiology and potential therapies of dental diseases. However, dental pathologies throughout the globe remain disturbingly and unacceptably prevalent. Moreover, inequalities between and within regions remain abundant. IADR has prioritized this situation in the Global Oral Health Inequalities Research Agenda - GOHIRA®. Our profession and discipline need to identify and emphasize the “translation of evidence” into pragmatic wide and regional health care models. This IADR Centennial Plenary Session will present the frameworks and research of three health care models in Scotland, Peru and the Republic of the Philippines.
