Video: 20min 24 sec


In healthcare, AI is supporting clinicians and consumers to make more precise healthcare decisions using data on genetics, environment and lifestyle. AI has the potential to deliver higher-powered clinical information and assessments, while overcoming barriers such as access to expert assessment and advice. However, the full benefits of AI cannot be realised unless the technology is safely and ethically integrated into clinical and consumer practice.

Artificial Intelligence is supporting clinicians to make more precise healthcare decisions. Join me as I shine a light on the advantages and challenges of AI in healthcare

This masterclass will investigate the impacts of AI on quality and patient safety, ethical challenges such as data ownership and privacy, and the very nature of the doctor-patient relationship. Join Professor Magrabi to explore the advantages and challenges of AI in healthcare.
