AI Health Virtual Seminar

Artificial Intelligence has been promoted as the key to solving key problems in healthcare, but the challenges facing us are far more complex and often intractable - with potential even to bring harm. In this 1-hour seminar, we'll discuss this landscape at a high level, including a history of unrealistic expectations, overhype that too often permeates this space, serious issues of bias and fairness, and other areas. We'll discuss illustrations and case studies drawn from the current scientific literature, informed by AI Health's longstanding Weekly Roundup of news and publications in AI. We'll also talk about the researchers and approaches that are informing responses to these problems, and the opportunities that exist to actively develop ethical and equitable data science.

Please join us for this lunchtime virtual seminar. The presentation will be accessible to a broad audience, including those with no prior background in health data science or artificial intelligence.
