Oxford Patient & Public Involvement Training: An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

In this talk we will introduce the basic premise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and some of the healthcare tools that have been developed.




Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a term that brings ideas of either a butler type machine catering for our every need or alternatively a terminator-like machine aiming to wipe humanity off the face of the earth. The term itself is meant to represent a machine that is able of cognitive abilities similar to humans.

In this talk we will look at the basic premise of AI, some of the tools that have been developed as a way of reaching this (theoretical) goal and how these tools are changing the way we interact, including how healthcare is or might be delivered in the near future.

This webinar will be presented by Rafael Perera from the University of Oxford’s Department of Primary Care. Rafael is Professor of Medical Statistics, and not an expert in this area but nevertheless interested in the use of these tools in healthcare.
