Emerging Health Technologies in Australia: Developments in automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and more
Emerging technologies such as automated decision-making (ADM) and artificial intelligence (AI) are being increasingly applied within healthcare contexts. However, media coverage tends to focus on overseas examples. What is happening here in Australia? What technologies actually exist, and what does AI look like in practice? What are the opportunities and impacts for health consumers?
In this webinar hosted by Consumers Health Forum, following the presentation from researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society, Datarwe Partnership Manager, Dr Stephanie Chaousis, is sharing the industry experience in this developing space.
Dr Stephanie Chaousis explains the challenges behind data access and data quality in health and how improved access to robust and healthy data sets can help the development of AI-enabled tools for hospitals and the healthcare sector.
At Datarwe, we are working to develop the world’s most comprehensive acute care real world data platform, enabling researchers and product developers to create next-generation Artificial Intelligence (AI) clinical diagnostic tools and technologies.
