Using Artificial Intelligence in healthcare

Find out how we can integrate AI meaningfully and safely into processes and systems.

About the event

The design, implementation and operation of safe and effective artificial intelligence (AI) is a complex and pressing issue across safety-critical domains. In healthcare in particular, there is increasing interest in the use of AI with many such systems currently under development or already in operation. It’s critical that human factors and ergonomics principles are used to support this evolution.

In this webinar we introduce the CIEHF White Paper Human Factors and Ergonomics in Healthcare AI. The Paper outlines eight key human factors and ergonomics principles and methods relevant to the design and use of AI in healthcare.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Why we need to move from a technology-centric focus, which is concerned predominantly with the performance and accuracy of AI in isolation, towards a systems perspective, which allows us to understand how we can integrate AI meaningfully and safely into processes and system.
  • The extent to which existing human factors and ergonomics approaches are appropriate to address the challenges of healthcare AI, and where there is a need for further research.
  • How this can be related to the current AI landscape in the NHS.
