overview

This two-day conference will look beyond the hype to get to the bottom of the real applications of AI & ML in healthcare and the considerations and challenges for use. The agenda will explore how clinicians and industry alike can leverage these emerging technologies to drive efficiencies, unlock opportunities for discovery and detection, enable greater accuracy and improve health outcomes. Critically, discussion will also delve into issues around privacy and data protection, patient and clinician trust in these emerging technologies, and navigating the regulatory landscape in Australia.

Potential(x) manages the largest non-governmental health care related dataset for public and private hospitals in Australia. Our CIO shares lessons on:

  • Managing and moving big datasets
  • The change from ‘data to reporting’ to ‘data to knowledge’
  • How AI/chatbots are reshaping our work

4:35 pm

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to significantly transform the role of the doctor and revolutionise the practice of medicine
  • One of the concerns that has been raised is the issue of legal liability when personal injury occurs. If a medical error occurs, who is to be held liable?
  • There is also the matter of morality and ethics with AI, illustrated by the classic ‘trolley problem’. As a profession, we need to have a mature discussion and debate about the legal, ethical and moral challenges of AI in health, and be leaders in this space rather than passive observers

5:05 pm

  • Regulation & compliance-Who’s job is this?
  • The quality of the data-Making sure it is accurate to maximise AI and ML applications
  • Data sharing-how to ensure privacy and safety
  • The role of blockchain in protecting personal data?
