Artificial intelligence and global health (WP1626)

We discuss the potential of AI to deliver improved health outcomes for individuals in low resource settings through the use of simple applications that build on existing health care approaches. The discussion also focused on ethical implications of using AI for global health, the likelihood of it exacerbating existing inequalities, and issues relating to trust, confidentiality and data privacy when using AI.
