Movies often over dramatise the effects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the world, with robotics threatening the human race as they become more intellectually advanced. This might be science fiction, but we are already in a world relying on AI in everyday life by using devices such as smartphones, and social media sites, which looks at past behaviour, and web searches which tailor the experience just for you.
Increasing AI is being used in healthcare settings to diagnose and improve patient outcomes. The technology is able to search through and analyse massive amounts of data to identify trends or genetic information that would predispose someone to a particular disease.
There is no denying the benefits of using AI in Healthcare, but should we be cautious of how we use it, and what future effects might it have?
This event brings together speakers who currently work in this field to talk about their experiences of AI in healthcare, the impact this has had and might have in the future, and what challenges it presents.
