Description

There’s a lot of media coverage on the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare. Data-driven health technologies are not science fiction. They are here now with the potential to do both good and harm.

Let’s bypass the hype... How can we make the most of the opportunities and use AI responsibly?

This event will have three short talks from leading thinkers followed by an open Q&A panel. We’ll also be joined by local healthcare leaders to talk about implications for the region.

Designing effective and safe AI needs the talents of citizens, creatives, healthcare professionals and more – join our diverse audience to share your thoughts.
