Navigating Through Regulatory Process for AI Innovators in Health and Care

3:35 PM-4:15 PM

Going through the regulatory process for an AI device can be quite daunting for anyone trying to innovate in health and care - from data access to post market surveillance.

However, the NHS AI Lab is keen to change this through the creation of a multi-agency-advisory-service (MAAS). This session will highlight some of the common issues faced by innovators, how to avoid making those common mistakes and how MAAS will eventually help to make this journey smoother.

What Role Does Diversity and Inclusion Play in AI?

2:50 AM-3:20 PM

Bias in AI development has been a growing concern as its use increases across the world. The lack of women and people of color, for example, in research and engineering can lead to products with built-in gender and racial biases. While a 100% elimination of bias in AI seems impossible, tech leaders are navigating the ethical implications of AI and adopting ways to balance AI model fairness. What are the fundamental causes of AI bias? What role do diversity and inclusion play in AI?

Speakers: Melvin Lopez-Corleone, senior RegTech specialist, external engagement lead, Bank of England; Angelica Stephenson, senior technical product manager, apps and partner content, Sky; Simone Pang, data scientist, diversity & inclusion, HSBC and Tania Duarte, co-founder, We and AI
