Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a game changer for the healthcare sector. The technology raises big hopes for pioneering advances in therapy and diagnostics, but also brings along significant doubts about potential risks and side effects. Data sets, models, and algorithms are often biased and don’t take women or other groups sufficiently into consideration. This strengthens existing inequalities and projects past and current prejudices into the future. Women are also significantly underrepresented in the development and programming of AI, resulting in a lack of diverse perspectives.
This conference aims to address this challenge and invites participants to contribute their thoughts. The current shortcomings of AI systems in healthcare will be discussed. Experts from academia, politics, economics, and medical practice will provide input for discussions in plenum and in ThinkTeams. The results of the debates will be summarised in an appeal of Women in Digital Health — for more gender-sensitive AI.
