We spoke to Mariam Shokralla, Digital Health consultant at the World Health Organization. She gave us her thoughts on AI in medicine ahead of her presentation at Intelligent Health (9-10 September 2020, Online), the world's largest online summit dedicated to AI in medicine.
So Mariam, what excites you most about the application of AI in healthcare?:
It's the potential to decrease health inequalities especially geographical inequalities. Ethically grounded AI solutions can help extend quality care to marginalized people, transform our health systems from being reactive to predictive and preventive, from Tertiary care to primary care especially to NCDs.
