As artificial intelligence (AI) technologies become more prevalent in health and care settings, there are legitimate concerns about whether they may exacerbate existing health inequalities. In particular, evidence from the US has shown that these technologies have disadvantaged some minority ethnic populations.

The NHS AI Lab at NHSX and the Health Foundation have partnered on a research competition, enabled by NIHR, focused on how to ensure that AI accounts for the health needs of diverse communities and how it can be leveraged to improve health outcomes in minority ethnic populations.

Join us on 19th October at 3:00pm (BST) to hear about the funded projects directly from our award holders and participate in a discussion about how we can translate research into ethical interventions that are patient-centred, inclusive, and impactful. 

Speakers

  • Brhmie Balaram, Head of AI Ethics, NHSX (Chair) 
     
  • Ziad Obermeyer, Blue Cross of California Distinguished Associate Professor, Health Policy and Management, UC Berkeley 
     
  • Naomi Lee, Senior Executive Editor, The Lancet and Vice Chair of the ITU/WHO Focus Group on Artificial Intelligence 
     
  • Josh Keith, Senior Fellow, the Health Foundation
