The newly announced National Artificial Intelligence (AI) Lab will be used to “train” algorithms and develop “ethical” frameworks, Matt Hancock has said. Appearing via video at NHS Expo, the health secretary said the lab was part of a “major transformation” to improve digital health and patient experience. The lab] will boost the national research capability with a controlled environment where we can train algorithms, trial new concepts and scale up the best ideas,” he told the audience in Manchester. Crucially, it will ensure we get the right laws and ethical frameworks in place as well as the right technology. This is ultimately what it is all about. We care about the technology because we care about people. Clinicians will have more time to look after their patients and themselves and patients will be more in control of their own health and their own healthcare.
