European institutions communicate their perspectives on AI in healthcare

The Centre for Artificial Intelligence under the European Parliament’s Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA) Panel has published a podcast on AI in healthcare.

Since its establishment in early 2020, STOA's Centre for Artificial Intelligence produces studies, organises public events and acts as a platform for dialogue and information exchange on AI-relevant topics within the EP and beyond. In 2021, the first series of podcasts was already produced, which covered the topics of international cooperation in AI governance, innovation, regulation, the role of citizens and AI ethics.

In addiction to the podcast the European Commission will be organising an event titled Navigating Health Inequalities in the EU through Artificial Intelligence on Friday 2 December 2022.

The podcast and event constitute important messages from the European institutions as the value of AI in enhancing future healthcare systems seems to be well-recognised. Accordingly, the items may put forward important clues on how the potential roles of these technologies in healthcare delivery are envisaged.

Key highlights

  • The podcasts were produced in collaboration with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) under the Partnership on AI. The Global Parliamentary Network (GPN), a platform for legislators and parliament officials to share their experiences and foster international legislative cooperation, contributed as well.
  • The series features key experts and policymakers from the field, among which MEPs Lina Gálvez Muñoz (S&D, Spain) and Pernille Weiss (EPP, Denmark).
  • One of the podcasts explores the role of AI in healthcare, how AI can contribute to the healthcare sector and the importance of legislation on AI in this context, while also considering potential risks. Another podcast is devoted to AI data governance.
