This session will focus on the future of artificial intelligence within healthcare.
Delegates will discuss the potential applications of AI in improving diagnosis and care, as well as measures that can be taken to support research, development, and implementation - along with priorities for addressing issues in areas such as ethics, bias and use of data.
It is taking place in the context of COVID-19, which has seen a rise in the use of AI as part of the healthcare response to the pandemic, and the ongoing AAC/NHSX/NIHR AI in Health and Care Award.
Areas for discussion include:
· the potential of artificial intelligence within healthcare and progress in its application so far
· ethical considerations and lessons from other sectors
· data sharing and security concerns
· avoiding bias, developing safeguards, and the priorities for skills and diversity in the sector
· priorities for supporting research and development, and for overcoming barriers to implementation
The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from DHSC; the MHRA; DCMS; DIT; and the Scottish Government.
