The session brought diverse case studies showing AI application in the health sector, focusing on how AI powered by data has made healthcare efficient and accessible and how it can lead innovation in developing countries. The panel was composed of world leading representatives in the field of technology, pharma and healthcare.
A Networking Event with the Assortis Members, EDD Participants and the speakers of the panel followed the session.
The panel presented case studies on the application of AI for collecting and regulating data, along with utilising data to detect and prevent diseases. All participants emphasised that data is at the core of modern AI. In order for populations to engage in data sharing, trust must be fostered through the right governance models. AI will change the way we treat diseases, and will be able to assist doctors to make better, more evidence-based decisions and address healthcare worker shortages. By providing local community workers with AI diagnostic capabilities, developing countries can leapfrog healthcare deficits.
