Online Webinar 

 

About this Event

Following a Keynote speech, an audience of Clinicians, AI technologists, policy makers, academics and businesses from the life sciences sector will break into groups to discuss the following topics:

• Driving efficiency in healthcare - how AI could help us do more with less

• Research & Development: patient data algorithms and clinical trials

• Data governance and legislation

• Access to AI for NHS trusts - developing commercial pathways

The discussions will identify the opportunities and challenges in these areas and will enable the development of new relationships and collaborations around practical solutions. We will support the output from these discussions by hosting a follow up event in June where we will outline various grant funding opportunities for AI in healthcare.

When registering your place, please select the ticket type for the breakout room that you would like to join.

How to make Data Science more racially inclusive

10th February 2021

18:00-19:00

Location: 
Online Webinar 

We are delighted to welcome back Andrew Sivaneson as speaker at this event . Andrew previously shared his journey upskilling into Data Science and is returning to talk openly around racial inclusivity best practice. He will start with observations on where the industry is for BAME currently and commenting on some recent high profile race related controversies within AI and ML, before addressing the downsides of white-centric AI and concluding with suggestions on what we can all do to improve racial inclusivity and equality in teams and products.

We are privileged that, Bunmi Durowoju will be joining us to continue the discussion. Bunmi has been recognised as top 100 most influential leaders in tech and sits on the woman@microsoft board, championing under-represented groups . A world class speaker, Bunmi brings remarkable energy and brilliant insight, replacing what can be uncomfortable and difficult conversations with open and curious discussion. As humans we can exhibit multiple types of bias and many are unconscious and without malice and Bunmi will share examples that highlight the impact of these biases to data sets and the effect they have on outputs when fed into algorithms and models and explore steps we can take to mitigate these biases.

We hope that attendees at this event will leave with a fresh insight into this all-important subject and realise that it is ok to make a mistake if we acknowledge, learn from it and move on. The important thing is to be having these conversations and trying to improve the situation.
