Important discussions are currently ongoing on the potential application of the artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare sector. In this regard, European authorities have been discussing for a while the opportunity of using AI for managing, interpreting and monitoring medical data to identify recommendation for a proper and correct use of it.
However, although AI offers solid promises to improve the healthcare system, on the other hand it brings many concerns on ethics principles, safety, trust and transparency towards users. The current question is now to understand whether Europe is ready to welcome and tackle the changing coming with it. To answer at this question, the FEAM is organizing an annual lecture with high-level experts of the field from different sectors (healthcare professionals’, academia, industry, etc.) to provide a clear prospective on challenges and opportunities and to identify recommendations and priorities to be addressed by European and national policy-makers to ensure the proper and safe use of the AI.
The FEAM European Biomedical Policy Forum provides a platform for discussion on key policy issues for the biomedical community.
The Forum is an initiative from the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM). It aims to bring together representatives from academia, research charities, industry, European and national trade associations and professional bodies, regulators, public health bodies, and patient and consumers groups.
