New research led by the University of Birmingham and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust has found that artificial intelligence (AI) can provide diagnosis as accurate as that provided by healthcare professionals.
A new grant from the government’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council will help a team of experts at Imperial College London train algorithms to solve healthcare, manufacturing and energy problems.
The Prime Minister has announced £250 million will be invested in artificial intelligence (AI) technology for the NHS, which the government believes will revolutionise healthcare in the UK. However, as it relies on personal data, there is the risk that this information will be mishandled, particularly if staff are not trained properly to use the technology.
Technology has made it easier than ever for people to work from home, or in fact anywhere. The internet and digital tools allow us to take work home with us, which can be beneficial for some.
Information sharing is essential for the UK’s public sector and could deliver significant benefits to our care and services.
