Track Type: Lecture |Date: 20 Aug 2021 (Fri) | Time: 0920 - 0940

AI is now used in many industries, including healthcare. Often, a key focus of AI development in healthcare is in the development of accurate algorithms to make a diagnosis, or to predict an outcome, or to enter a process pathway. However, there are other major considerations that are important to any AI work, especially in healthcare. These include ethical, regulatory, legal, humanism, professional and training considerations. In this talk, Assoc Prof Yeo will discuss some of these issues and highlight the importance of a holistic approach in deploying AI to healthcare.
