How close are we to swapping our GPs for AI's? As machine learning is increasingly adopted into our systems of society, when will we see its launch into the medical field? 

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training student Jonny Jackson will chair a panel discussion that looks at the ethics of AI-driven healthcare. 

Panelists include: 

  • Professor Tom Vercauteren, pioneering researcher at King's whose work is using AI to recognise signs of disease. 
  • Dr Ali Jomaa,an active NHS A&E doctor and futurist working to improve his patients' care with breakthrough digital technologies. 
  • Dr Christine Aicardi, a big-picture social scientist at the EU's Human Brain Project investigating the potential dangers of using AI in healthcare. 
  • Juan Echenique, co-founder of Horatio Productions, a company which seeks a new storytelling language around science in theatre and film.
