Technologies driven by artificial intelligence (AI) have the potential to transform health outcomes and experiences of the health and care system for the better, but we must also acknowledge evidence of AI solutions being deployed in other industries or countries without sufficient oversight or precautions being taken to ensure that they benefit everyone.
NHSX's NHS AI Lab has introduced the AI Ethics Initiative to research and trial practical interventions to ensure that AI products used in the NHS and care settings will not exacerbate health inequalities.
Join the NHS AI Lab and partners in this webinar to learn about their approach and opportunities to be involved in the first projects, which focus on:
- Optimising AI to improve the health and care outcomes of minority ethnic communities, through a joint research call with the NIHR and the Health Foundation
- Facilitating early-stage exploration of algorithmic risks, in partnership with the Ada Lovelace Institute
- Empowering healthcare professionals to make the most of AI, in partnership with Health Education England
A Q&A for the upcoming AI and Racial and Ethnic Inequalities in Health and Care funding call will be held at 14:05 -14:35.
