Artificial Empathy: coding compassion into connected healthcare
Tue 11 April 2017, 17:30 – 20:00 BST
This is the second in a series of 3 bimonthly sessions at Health Foundry and curated by thinkingaroundcorners to provoke thinking around successful technology interventions in healthcare. So whether you are an entrepreneur, medical practitioner or a health bunny, come along and join the movement.
In this second session, we will explore how machine learning/AI could actually be used to detect how an intervention is working, how it makes users feel and how automation could take the strain to let human carers do what only humans can do.
We'll open the session at 5.30 with expert speakers, followed by a short Q&A / panel. Then, we'll break to pick up a drink and some nibbles and those who would like to, can join the speakers and hosts for a round table discussion around the subject to share ideas and issues we face to deliver effective services.
Our first confirmed Keynote speaker is Dr Kathryn Waddington, outgoing Head of Psychology at University of Westminster and renowned expert will talk about components of compassion that could be simulated.
More to come.
