Will AI Make Health and Care More Fair? (Cambridge)
Join OHT Cambridge for their launch event, where we will be discussing the topics of fairness, equity and equality in AI in health and care. Don't know anything about us? Then just come along and get involved!
We know, we know - Everyone is very excited about AI, most people are concerned about the hype and to date, there are very few use cases of AI being implemented for patient benefit at scale. A key area of both opportunity and concern is will AI make health and care more fair? Will AI help us allocate resources for effectively to those who truly need it? Will AI only detect conditions well in certain patient populations? Will AI eliminate current physician bias or merely automate unfair decisions?
Join One HealthTech Cambridge (which is also our launch event here!) to discuss these questions in a warm, friendly and informal community atmosphere! And questions? Email us at

We have a little fund to make our events more accessible (woop woop!)
If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to £30 (but ask for more if you need, worth a try) per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if travelling around is tricky, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live-captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too. Find out more
