Machine Intelligence in Healthcare: Perspectives on Trustworthiness, Explainability, Usability and Transparency

July 12, 2019
8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET

6001 Executive Boulevard (Neuroscience Building)
Rockville, Maryland 20852

NCATS, along with the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering and the National Cancer Institute, is hosting a workshop on Machine Intelligence (MI) in Healthcare. MI is rapidly becoming key to biomedical discovery, clinical research, medical diagnostics and devices, and precision medicine. In the context of this meeting, MI is defined as the ability of a trained computer system to provide rational, unbiased guidance to humans in such a way that achieves optimal outcomes in a range of environments and circumstances. MI tools can uncover new possibilities for both physicians and patients, allowing them to make more informed decisions and achieve better medical outcomes. When deployed, these outputs can enhance efficiency at every level of the healthcare system.

NCATS invites the community to share their perspectives with us on current issues associated with incorporation of MI tools into healthcare. Meeting outputs from this workshop will be used to develop a whitepaper on translating MI for clinical applications and the associated process improvement needed when implementing MI tools in healthcare environments.
