About this event

  • Date and time Wed 21 Jun 2023 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Digital Health

Clinicians need to be better informed about artificial intelligence (AI) as this technology is being adopted across health and care and continues to progress rapidly. It is important for clinicians to ensure that the technology is used for the benefit of patients and to assist us in providing equitable and good quality care now and in the future. We also need to be aware of some of the risks and unintended consequences of using AI. This event will discuss the development of machine learning and artificial intelligence, outline their applications to healthcare and debate the need for ethical guidelines and regulation. 

Participants of this event will:

  • Gain a basic understanding of machine learning and AI 
  • Gain knowledge of how AI is applied to healthcare: current and potential future? 
  • Understand how data drives AI and the bias within the data 
  • Recognise how ML and AI can lead to errors and harm 
  • Consider the ethical issues in relation to the use of AI in healthcare 
  • Discussion about regulation and governance of AI in healthcare and the broader society
