Artificial Intelligence


Growing a worldwide technical network to support the growth of AI, by promoting and challenging conventional approaches in businesses and society. It will encourage the AITN community to focus on the integration of AI technology with ourselves and the world we live in by understanding and expanding its limitations, evolving technologies into standalone decision-making entities and how exploring this impacts ethics.

  • Challenging the development and understanding of AI, also realising the perceptions of human and technology interfacing, to boost confidence of this technology among businesses and society;
  • Increasing skills and the knowledge base within the AI community (community building), including the diversity of people studying and working in AI;
  • Understand and promote progression and AI techniques from Industries experience to date.

The AI Network is now live!   Read the blog for more details.

Welcome from the Chair (Dr Elise Tapping)

Designing AI-Powered Elder Care Products: Best Practices and Considerations

Have a look at the Healthcare podcasts - Artificial intelligence: hype or hope?

Prof Alastair Denniston and Dr Xiaoxuan Liu discuss why you would want to carry out a clinical trial for an artificial intelligence intervention. We also look at how clinical trials rely on good design, to ideally eliminate bias, but also on consistent reporting standards so that the results of the trial, whether good or bad, are made widely available.
