Event Overview

There has been enthusiastic growth in the adoption of technology and even AI as a means of  supporting health care delivery and education. But there have also been significant concerns  and considerations identified. This includes issues of trust, privacy, bias, and other concerns of  equity-seeking communities. To ensure the successful and safe adoption of these technologies  to support care and education there is a need to have open and transparent dialogue about  parameters and utilization policies to guard and guide their utilization and improve health  equity. Experiences using technology and AI across the world are different according to the  contexts in which they are applied and can offer interesting insights and lessons learned for a  global audience. An introductory panel discussion will be followed by interactive knowledge  gathering using small and large group techniques.
