Regulation of AI in healthcare: what should we expect?

AI hold tremendous promise for healthcare. Technologists frequently talk about ‘disrupting’ healthcare in the same way that technology has disrupted retail, communication, entertainment, and many other spheres of life. We are now seeing a culture clash, between the ‘move fast’ world of technology, and the ‘safety first’ world of medicine. What is the role of regulation in striking the right balance? What’s on the horizon? What should we, as patients and as clinicians, expect?

Dr Matthew Fenech will be speaking in the following theatre:

Theatre 9 - Tuesday 14.45 - 15.15: Regulation of AI in healthcare: what should we expect?
