Q: What excites you most about the application of AI in healthcare?
We have seen healthcare transform into a data-intensive discipline over the past decade with the increased use of EHRs, wearable sensors, etc. I am excited to see the synergy of domain knowledge and machine intelligence in improving overall human health.
On Monday 25th May from 11am – 12pm BST Intelligent Health Inspired will be hosting an exclusive and candid interview with key experts in the field, on COVID-19: Current landscape, use of technology, obstacles and the future.

Owkin is introducing the Covid-19 Open AI Consortium (COAI) to bring breakthrough medical discoveries and actionable findings to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
These are difficult times affecting all aspects of our life and society. Digital health technologies such as AI, big data, 5G and robotics are critical tools in the fight against COVID-19.
So-called “frontier technologies” offer a transformative potential towards reaching universal health coverage in low and middle income countries. This will only be achieved, though, if the technology-based solutions are scaled-up and systematically integrated into existing healthcare structures. Moreover, fundamental technical, ethical and legal questions regarding data security, fairness, non-discrimination and privacy need to be addressed. The World Health Organization (WHO) could assume a leading role in facilitating the development of a global regulatory framework.
