A day doesn’t go by without hearing AI-this, AI-that in healthcare. With funding pouring into the technology, escalating healthcare costs and worrisome healthcare professional staff shortages, everyone is wondering if AI will provide the answer. But many people believe that AI is at the peak of the hype cycle, with drastically inflated expectations and insufficient clinical validation to safely and effectively transform healthcare.

Join One HealthTech for our Oxbridge style debate where two speakers for, and two speakers against the motion will discuss and debate the merits and risks of AI in healthcare, with the floor ultimately voting on whether they believe “AI in healthcare is too hyped for its own good”

Matthew Campbell-Hill, Non Executive Director, MHRA

Indra Joshi, Clinical Lead for Digital Urgent and Emergency Care, NHS England
